Windows – Pound sign on Windows on MBP with US keyboard

keyboardkeyboard shortcutswindows

I have a MacBook Pro (early 2011 model) with a U.S. keyboard, which of course does not have a number pad.

I have Windows 7 installed on a second partition using Boot Camp. How can I insert the GBP Pound (currency) sign using the keyboard alone? (I don't particularly want to have to go into Character Map.)

  • I am not a huge expert on this, but one thing you could do is download the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator and create your own keyboard layout, and Map Shift+3 (or whatever else you want it to be) to the Pound sign. This tool can be pretty handy, you get complete reign over your keyboard layout. This won't affect your Mac OSX install since it is just particular to the Windows installation, it doesn't reconfigure the laptop keyboard or anything like that.
