    Hi,

    I was struggling to find the # hash sign shortcut on UK keyboard.

    Advice on other threads is to use Alt + 3 but it did not work:confused:

    Thought I would give a heads up to help a.n.others this only works with the right hand Alt + 3.

    Left Alt + 3 also works for me.

    I always remember that # is on the 3 key as the Americans call that a pound and the British keyboard has the £ (pound) sign on the 3 key as Shift + 3.

    Well maybe I have a duff keyboard <LOL> and hopefully my post will help someone else - with a duff keyboard :eek:.

    Mine is an Apple wireless keyboard as supplied with the iMac 27, see here http://www.apple.com/keyboard/

    I have that one and also a wired one with the numeric keypad, both work the same. DO any other key combinations cause you problems?
