I've got an American Laptop, and the keyboard has a Dollar Sign, and NO £ sign. Does anyone know how to change this.
Thanks

Is your windows set up for UK region? (Control Panel > Region and Languages)

If it is pressing the 'SHIFT'and '3' will give you the £ symbol.

you to control panel, regional setting and change from there

If you change the keyboard to a UK keyboard, you will get some other, less convenient changes - eg - where the @ key is.

If you want simply to get a £ sign in a document/etc then you could hold down the Alt key and type 0163 on the numeric pad.
