Cant get pound sign to work or other symbols seem to be in wrong place

Since my laptop went in for keyborad repairs, a couple of keys kept sticking, the keyboard has been wrong. The computer was wiped clean when it was returned to me but the pound sign dosnt work and other symbols are in the wrong place. I have checked that all regional settings are set to UK but this has not made any difference. Can you help please?

You need to check your keyboard language settings as it sounds like it is set to US english

go to regional settings and check ( it is on a button in one of the sub pages... you really need to check everything)

although I understand that you have already checked this, this is the ONLY thing that causes this so you have missed something

Hi I have a Logitech EX110 keyboard ... I would like to know the short cut keys for the Euro and Pound sign


For the € sign it should be AltGr + 4

I'm assuming that pound means £ (GBP) and not #...... Do you have the £ sign on the number 2 key? If you do and your just not getting the £ symbol when pressing Shift + 2 then you probably have the keyboard set to the wrong language.

In control panel look for Region and Language settings, in there should be keyboard languages. In that section make sure that you have the correct one selected for your keyboard.

Thanks

How do i find the pound sign on my e machines laptop


On US keyboards the pound symbol is usually on the number 3 key (upper left area of board). Use a SHIFT modifier key in combination with the number 3 key and you should get what you're after.
Good luck!

Hi, 2 of my key symbols display the wrong character when pressed. i cannot find the pound sign even though it appears on the 2key. regards dan


the first thing I would do is go download a "keymapper" when you run it it will tell which keys make which symbols, numbers, and letters. So if there is a mapping issue you could also fix it.

Need to have the ability to use the symbol for the (UK) pound


I found this, hope it will help you:

To type the Euro sign in Windows, you press the alt key+0128. As for the Sterling pound symbol, you can type it by pressing the alt key+0163. You can have a look at this site where it lists ways to type different currency symbols:
http://www.fonts.com/fontent/fontent_home.asp?nCo=AFMT&con=fyti_currency

Please note that you have to type the 4-digit code on the numeric keypad (do not use the normal number keys) while holding down the Alt key.

There were also past discussion in the forums, such as:

copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The pound symbol


I am unable to answer your problem that why you are not getting the required symbol if it is there (Hope that you are pressing the no. 3 with Shift key pressed).
But if you need a Pound sign you can get it by pressing 0163 key from the right side numeric keypad while pressing the alt key (i.e. alt+0163).
Remember that you cannot use the upper number key for this purpose.
