ALT key is a modifier key that, when pressed with another key, will execute some action specific to whatever program is being used. Such as alt - left & right being forward & backward in firefox. Or will execute OS-wide commands such as alt-F4 closing applications.

ALT-GR is a modifier key used for generating typed characters not usually found on the keyboard. This is usually related foreign currency or punctuation £ ¿ è and the like. Keyboards which feature an ALT-GR key will usually show an alternate character on some keys, often in another color, pressing ALT-GR plus these keys will produce those characters.

The ALT-GR can in some cases be substituted on keyboards with an ALT-GR key by pressing both the ALT key and CTRL key.
