How to get the sterling pound symbol in K120 logitech keyboard

Entering the following keystroke combination will result in the Pound Sterling sign being displayed:
While holding down the ALT key, enter 0163 (ALT+0163).

This is known ASCII Code. (Pronounced Ask-key.)
A complete list of all 256 character codes is available at .
All manner of Latin-based characters are available. Check it out.
To use any ASCII Code, choose the "HTML Number" and substitute "ALT+0" for "&#".
In this case, the HTML Number is &#163, therefore when entering text, type ALT+0163 (NOTE: "ALT+" means "While holding down the ALT key, press and release each of the four digits in sequence, then release the ALT key.)

Hope this helps.

I have just bought a MX5500 keyboard and mouse. As a UK citizen I need to be able to type a pound sign and a euro sign but this is a US keyboard. Can you help

Unfortunately, a US keyboard is set up to send out keycodes for the US symbols. If you're using Windows 7, this information from Microsoft may be helpful.For XP, you can try changing your regional settings in the Control Panel (Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options). You can try changing the keyboard layout and see what happens.

One sure way to get the symbols from any keyboard is by using alt codes. Hold down the ALT key and (on the numeric pad) press 0128 for the Euro symbol (€). ALT-0163 gives you the Pound Sterling symbol (£).

I do not have an Pound sterling key sign on my keyboard, make of Pc Compaq.

Usually the Pound Sterling key is Shift+3, provided that the computer is set to recognise the keyboard as a UK one. Control Panel->Regional Settings (in windows) is where you set the keyboard language.
