Where’s the # Sign on the Keyboard? (UK)

If you live in the UK, you may notice that your Apple Mac doesn’t have a # symbol on the keyboard. In the US they # sign is on the 3 key, but instead we have the £ sign instead.

To type #, simply press ALT+3 or OPTION+3

An interesting fact. The # sign is called ‘hash’ in the UK but often called ‘pound sign’ in the US, which is the same name we give to our currency (£). You can therefore easily remember the shortcut as an ‘Alternative way to say pound/£’ (ALT+3)

We asked for Luke to come in for a training day with our staff since we were taking over the running of a Mac office and all had very little experience of using them. We found the half a day of training exceptionally useful. We were taught basic things, however we could already see that they would greatly increase our productivity and understanding of how to get the best out of using the Mac computers. The session was the best of both worlds of being taught the basics that we were lacking but without going too basic and wasting time. Will definitely be getting Luke back in again soon!

Thank you Luke for sorting out all my Apple issues! Luke was able to set up my multiple computers, phones and iPads with home and business email and calendar accounts. I have used his services multiple times and he always knows what to do, from printers, wifi and fix any issues whenever my Mac breaks or I need help with Office apps. Highly recommended.
