+keyboard with Acer AspireE500-A970. How do I access the Euro symbol (lower case with Number 4) on the keyboard? Arthur


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:
http://www.fonts.com/fontent/fontent_home.asp?nCo=AFMT&con=fyti_currency

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.

Hope this helps.

How can I write a pound sign by using a dell keyboard


The easiest way is to hold down the Alt key and type "156", then release the Alt key. You will see a British pound (£) sign appear. However, sometimes "pound" means the number sign (#), but that's mostly used in voicemail prompts.
If you use the first pound symbol a lot, you can either keep it on the clipboard, or consider remapping a key you never use (like the tilde, or ~) to type that character (see http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article02-022).

Hope this helps!

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!

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.
