I cannot find any simple method to get a pound sign on my Australian Toshiba. Has anyone here ever had to do this? I would be  grateful for any assistance as I am not a very techie user.

 

Thanks

Well, when I need a character not supported as native on my keyboard I always use Character Map that's part of System Tools.  It's still here on Win10.  When I want the degrees (as in temperature) symbol that's how I get it.

 

In MS-Word and some other word processors there are actually keystrokes that can produce certain less frequently used characters but I always have to look up what those are.

This webpage is also a very handy guide on how to produce less-commonly-used symbols on your computer.

Alt + 156 should do it (press & hold alt, press 1 5 6 then release alt key - result £). I have a small label to remind me on a Czech layout keyboard I sometimes use.
