Is there a way to change the $ key to £ on a US keyboard. Many thanks

I think you mean that your keyboard is set to US. I don't think they make different keyboards. Go to Control Panel and select Date, Time, Language and Regional Options, Regional and Language Options. Select languages tab at the top and click on details. Change the keyboard layout to UK English.

If you're using a US keyboard, you can type a £ sign with Control Alter Shift 4.

They do make American keyboards without any £ sign and other keys moved around.

Other languages have their own key layout as well. As an example a French layout starts A Z E R T Y instead of the English Q W E R T Y.

If you really do have an American keyboard, Doug29, you can buy quite reasonable UK ones for not very much money.

Is it a laptop. If not go to Control Panel Regional and Languages icon double click and change to British English
