SOURCE: The pound symbol

I am unable to answer your problem that why you are not getting the required symbol if it is there (Hope that you are pressing the no. 3 with Shift key pressed).
But if you need a Pound sign you can get it by pressing 0163 key from the right side numeric keypad while pressing the alt key (i.e. alt+0163).
Remember that you cannot use the upper number key for this purpose.

ahhh..well...that is in the settings, under control panel. Not certain that it includes this option, but you can find that under control panel, and keyboards settings..you might need to add that option to your list. Not too hard to implement.

SOURCE: cant get pound sign to work or other symbols seem to be in wrong place

you need to check your keyboard language settings as it sounds like it is set to US english

go to regional settings and check ( it is on a button in one of the sub pages... you really need to check everything)

although I understand that you have already checked this, this is the ONLY thing that causes this so you have missed something

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.

SOURCE: Different keys display different digits or letters

My laptop does not type the letters on the keys. ie. t= y; I know it's a toggle issue but I cannot remember which keys to undo. I must have toggled it by accident? Plz help?

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 (£).

You need to check your keyboard setting layout , look for it in your control panel and change the layout to either uk or us, which ever applies to you.

I assume yo have WinXP. 

Go into control panel>Regional & Language... Change your location to whatever you want it to be.  Keyboard assigned symbols are supposed to change accordingly.  But the keyboard printing remains the same so you need an "overlay" for your country.

You can also customize it to some degree also.  Play around with it and have some fun.
