Shift 3 doesn't do the job?Gary King said:How do I type Pound symbol on Windows with a Mac keyboard? Using alt + 0163 doesn't work, and same with any other alt codes. Why not, on a Mac keyboard?
That works fine here with an Apple keyboard plugged into an XP box. You've got the keyboard layout set to "United States - International" when you're trying that?mkrishnan said:Is there a key on the apple keyboard that corresponds to the RIGHT Alt key on Windows? There are a number of codes on this page:
But they require the right alt key (not the left one). For instance, shift+right-alt+4 for £.
Hah... You know... I was so confused by this. This thread is about typing the characters in WINDOWS, not on a Mac (but using a Mac keyboard), right?CorvusCamenarum said:Hold down the alt key and hit 3. When you're using a PC keyboard on a Mac, as I frequently do, the alt key usually corresponds to Mac's option key.
