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.

How do i find the pound sign on my e machines laptop


On US keyboards the pound symbol is usually on the number 3 key (upper left area of board). Use a SHIFT modifier key in combination with the number 3 key and you should get what you're after.
Good luck!

Need to have the ability to use the symbol for the (UK) pound


I found this, hope it will help you:

To type the Euro sign in Windows, you press the alt key+0128. As for the Sterling pound symbol, you can type it by pressing the alt key+0163. You can have a look at this site where it lists ways to type different currency symbols:

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

There were also past discussion in the forums, such as:

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

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

Pound symbol


The # (pound) sign is above the number 3 on the keyboard. Don't forget to shift before pressing on the number 3.
Hope this helps. Bud
