You need to change your keyboard default from USA to UK.
Your settings are in Control panel / region and language / look for the keyboard settings here.
If UK is not listed, click on add, choose UK and then make it default

I do not have an Pound sterling key sign on my keyboard, make of Pc Compaq.


Usually the Pound Sterling key is Shift+3, provided that the computer is set to recognise the keyboard as a UK one. Control Panel->Regional Settings (in windows) is where you set the keyboard language.

Keys have changed


Your keyboard language is set to the wrong language.

Im guessing that as US is the default you are in the UK but using a US language layout for your keyboard.

Goto Start --> Settings --> Control Panel

Select 'Regional and Language Settings' (If xp you may need to set it to view in classic mode)

Select the 'Languages' Tab and click Details in the 'Text Services and input languages' group box.

Set the language there that you need and hit apply!

I got this from a local advice board. It should help you.

Thank you,

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:
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.

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

copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
