Hash key on UK keyboard

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

In OS X with a UK keyboard the hash key (#) is typed with Alt-3, but in Windows this isn't working with the UK Apple keymapping. I can't type the key and so can't create a mapping to it with Input Remapper.

 

Has anyone got a workaround/solution? Ideally I'd like either Alt-3 or RApple-3 (effectively mapped as AltGr in Windows) to type the # but if there's something already set up that I'm missing that's fine.

 

Thanks

 

Martin

If you change back to the default Windows UK layout I think all keys should work. You can check the Windows layout on this page:

Using the United Kingdom (Apple) keyboard layout I found the righthand Alt-3 gave me the # symbol where the lefthand Alt didn't.
