  2. I cannot get the UK pound sign when I press the key I get # (shift+pound sign).

    Original title: I cannot get the UK pound sign

    Hi, I have converted to Windows 10 and I cannot get the UK pound sign when I press the key I get # (shift+pound sign). Also the 'at' symbol is switched I get " pressing (shift+@) and I have to press (shift+") to get @....

    Now I have checked and I am using the UK English keyboard, been through all the settings and definitely using UK keyboard so I am stumped and any help would be appreciated. I can cope with the " and the @ switch but it is very awkward not being able to get
    the pound sign.

    Using a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse.

    Regards

    Andrew

  3. Help pound sign not working. Windows 10

    Guys, with all the tec there is out there it should be possible to just have the $ sign on a US keyboard produce a pound sign instead. I have a US keyboard, live in England, don't want to change the rest of the keyboard as too much faff remembering where everything
    is, but want a pound sign when I press the currency key. Now please don't tell me I have to have an English keyboard to do that...
