How to get the 'hash' symbol on a macbook keyboard

Postby Baskanos » 2020-07-09 17:31

I'm trying to find how to get the 'hash' symbol on my macbook, shift 3 gives £. Is there a key combination that gives a 'hash'? Tried google but didn't find a working solution. I don't want to lose the £ also,

This is another sign where typing it will depend on the keyboard. If you are in the UK the hashtag sign shares the 3 key with the pound sign (£) but on other country’s keyboards the UK £ sign is found else where (we’ll get to that next).

On a UK keyboard to type # you should press:

Alt/Option-3 = #
On a US keyboard to type # you need only press:

Shift-3 = #
