I recently purchased a laptop from the Far East and whilst it runs like any other computer, it does not have an 'english pound sign key'. Is it possible to download a program which will allow me to assign the pound sign to another key. if it is, can anybody advise, in detail, how this can be done.
Ctl Alt 3 or 4 does not work either. I have now gone into 'Add input languages' section - 'Details' and it is set as English (United Kingdom) - Under this there is a ticked box saying 'Keyboard Layout' - US. Having scrolled through all other available languages there is nothing for The UK or UK English or alike. Any suggestions?
OK - Finally licked it - and here is the proof ££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££! Went into regional options, languages, details, key settings, change key options, alt + shift + 1 (in my case) enables you to switch between english US or UK or any other language. So, the process is - alt + shift + 1 - then shift # to get the pound sign! - easy when you know how! (NOT!) - Saved me £20 not taking it to PC World for them to do it for me! - Thanks to all those that advised.
