If your shift key breaks do you have to buy a new keyboard?


Hi
There are usually 2 shift keys on a keyboard, one on the left below Caps Lock and the other on the right blow the return key. If only one of these is broken, you can get along by using the other only although it may not be as ergonomically friendly.
If both have gone then yes, I would recommend a new keyboard as I cannot think of another way to get at the shifted number symbols except a long-winded copy paste routine from the font file, and they are not all that expensive for a basic one. The one I am using cost me about 5 pounds sterling.
Hope you find this helpful
Cheers

Where is the pound sign?


Totype the Euro sign in Windows, you press the alt key+0128. As for the Sterlingpound symbol, you can type it by pressing the alt key+0163. You can have a lookat this site where it lists ways to type currency symbols.

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

The assainged key for 'hash" is "SHIFT - 3" If it showas any other symbol than this, the inside membrane of the keyboard is faulty. You should contact the deler or Acer service center to make it right. OK.

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.
