Hi,
A recent Microsoft update is probably responsible for this. It will have changed your keyboard settings from English UK to English US.

Here is how to set it right >>>>>>

Click on the start menu and click control panel. From the list in control panel click on Regional and Language Options.
Click on the Languages tab and then click on the Details button.
In that list you will both language settings (US and UK).
Click on English US and click on remove. (If English UK is not in the list click on "Add" and select English UK as the default keyboard settings).
The computer will tell you that the language cannot be removed until you log off or something similar of that nature.
Click Yes and then Apply and Apply and OK in the other window.

Then click on the start menu and log off your account.
Re-log on and the keyboard settings should be changed to UK.

If you require anymore help please feel free to post back.


Regards.

How do I type my uk pound sign I have changed the language settings


The £ character is part of the font character set which changes when u change character sets.
If you want to stay with the language settings you have you must determine where the £ is in the character set.
My £ is produced when I enter ALT + 156. The character is in the upper 128 of characters. Number 156 to be exact. For the British KBD it is mapped to a key to make it a single keystoke.

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 to make a ''£'' when in British English


Alt 0163 is £. Numbers must be entered on the keypad, not the top row of numbers on the keyboard.
In Word you could also set a key you don't use such as ^ to produce £ so you don't have to bother with entering codes.

Asus X58Cseries with Windows Vista Basic has $ sign on 4 key but no pound sign. Any way of getting it? If not, I can live with it but would like to know either way.Cheers, Linda.


I'm an Asus X58C user in the UK and my keyboard is the same. I've not found an easy solution. The only way I can insert a £ character is this. Place your coursor where you want the character. Turn Numbers Lock on using the blue Fn and NumLk keys. Hold down the Alt key and then using the blue numbers keys type 0163. Release the Alt key and the £ character will appear. Turn Numbers Lock off using the blue Fn and NumLk keys again. Its laborious but it works, its how I typed it here. I also found out that if you hold down Ctrl and Alt and then press the 4 key, you type the euro character €. Hope this helps
