    Did the keys work correctly before?

    Did you install any new hardware or software before this problem started?

Ok, Good, glad you resolved the issue for FREE.
We assume that all of the problems listed are in the US, unless it is included in the posting, so we had NO way of knowing you were in the UK since it was not in the post.
Have a good day.

Pound sign


Press and Hold the Shift Key then hit the number 3 key. The # sign is on the 3 key, but since it is above the number 3 that means you have to press and hold the shift key.

Hash key


I tried the lower left Fn key plus the key just beneath the Backspace key on the right of the keyboard this created the # key you need (this on a Satellite Toshiba laptop)

When i press the 3 key and the shift key i should get a pound sign but I get a hash sign#


Hello,

Shift + 1 = !
Shift + 2 = @
Shift + 3 = #
Shift + 4 = $

I am assuming your keyboard is set to English USA. Go into control panel, regional settings and make sure everything there is set to UK but then also open Word, up to Tools on menu bar, down to language and check that it is English UK there also and set by default. If this does not work you will have to insert it from character map and add it to autocorrect feature.

Hope this helps. Kindly update me on the same.

regards
Sammy
