If this is Windows you possibly have the wrong language set for your keyboard or the font doesn't have one. If you don't want to mess with your settings there 2 ways (possibly more) one is with the cursor where you want the ~ put keypad into numeric, press and hold the alt key type 0126 on the keypad let go the alt key
or
run charmap which is part of Windows highlight the ~ (about 4 lines down in Arial) press select then press copy and past it as required.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: Gateway Keyboard kb-0532, tilde key does not work in fallout 3

If it is not working only in specific games, then the issue is most likely with the game itself, or some settings therein. Your keyboard does not require a driver for the key to work. The generic drivers that come built-in with Vista should make any keyboard to work. A keyboard driver is only needed to program the hot keys and play/volume etc. functions.

Try the tilde key in Notepad or MS Word. If it works there, then the issue is with the game. You will have to refer to the game manual to find out how to program the key.

If, however, the key does not work in Notepad / Word either, then your keyboard is most likely defective. Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you resolve your problem.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

SOURCE: hash key

I tried the lower left Fn key plus the key just beneath the Backspace key on the right of the keyboard this created the # key you need (this on a Satellite Toshiba laptop)

To make a lowercase ? in the Microsoft Windows operating system, hold down the Alt key and type the number 164 or 0241 on the numeric keypad (with Num Lock turned on). To make an uppercase ?, press Alt-165 or Alt-0209. Character Map in Windows identifies the letter as "Latin Small/Capital Letter N With Tilde".

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!

What is the purpose of the ~ in my keyboard?


Tilde A character ( ~ ) found on computer keyboards that is generally below the escape, or ESC, key and on the same key as the back quote that is similar to a squiggly line. Below are a few examples of how the tilde is used.
  1. Shorten long file names in Microsoft Windows 95 above. For example, changing the "Program Files" directory to "Progra~1".
  2. Access the console in programs and games.
  3. Get to the home directory on a Linux computer (for example: cd ~).

Tilde Key Issue


Is your Tilde key functioning? ie it could be a dirty or stuck switch.

To test the key, open a Word document and try typing the Tilde. If it shows on the screen then your keyboard is OK, if not then the key is dirty or stuck and you will probably need a new keyboard.

If the key is working, then . . . . I dunno.
