Hello there!

What you're looking for is actually called "the pound sign". On most computers, the pound sign can be located (and used) by holding down the shift key and tapping the number "3" button.

You could also try using what's called the "character mapper" app. It's built-into Windows:

Do a search from the start menu for "character map". It should pop up fairly quickly for you. From that app, you can physically click on whatever character you need with your mouse. As far as changing the language on your computer, that can be a bit tricky if you have a keyboard which is in a foreign language...

I wish you the best, and hope I was helpful!

I want to change my asus 333 pc from chinese language to english

Which Operating System?

The display language is the language that Windows uses in wizards, dialog boxes, menus, Help and Support topics, and other items in the user interface. Some display languages are installed by default, and others require you to install additional language files. When you change the display language, it is changed for your user account and is not changed on the Welcome screen. If you want to set the display language for multiple users or the Welcome screen, see Apply regional and language settings to reserved accounts.

  1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

  2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.

  3. Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.

Hello sir i need your help regarding my accer lap top key board my shift and at the rate key not working when i write email address what can i do please tell me where as my key board is ok

Hi Zulfi,
The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been changed, so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Region and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
- Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
- In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I recently bought ASUS U31F and i am having issues with @ function on keyboard. If i try to get @ working on numberpad on top using shift function system is returning " sign and if i press " sign...

Go to the control panel and look for the Region and Language option. Make sure the options on the Formats tab correspond to your location. Then go to the Keyboards and Languages tab and click the Change keyboards button. If a keyboard for your location and language is not shown, click Add and add it to the list. Remove any other keyboards that are shown that you do not use.
The problem is caused by Windows thinking you are using an American keyboard in the UK or the other way around. Changing the Region and Language options above should fix the problem.
Best of luck!

How to Change Windows Language From English to Arabic?

you havent said which operating system you are using, but for windows 7 click "Start" and select "Control Panel" then if you are looking at the "category" screen (says in top of window "view by" you need to click on "Clock, Language, and Region" then "Region and Language" then "keyboards and Languages" and at the bottom of the screen you will see "How can I install additional languages" Click this and it will tell you all you need to know. You will probably need a language pack from microsoft, not having had to get one I cant tell you if they are a free download or not.
