    I have a new iMac. I can't find the hash symbol. Also, is there a forward-delete key somewhere or is this not a feature of Macs?

    Thanks in advance.

    The hash key is the on top of the number 3 key. The forward delete key is to the left of the keypad. Look at the number 7 on the keypad and look three spaces to the left.

    Depends on keyboard language. Hash is accessible with option+3 on a UK keyboard.

    Oh yeah, sorry I didn't ask which type of keyboard was he using, I assumed the U.S. version although the OP didn't specify either.

    Hi,

    there is a virtual keyboard which shows you all the keys you can produce with your current layout. Tutorial over at Mac Kindergarten.

    That's great, thanks. But I still can't find the forward-delete. I have a British keyboard (I assume).
