No they are not in the UK number is what we call hash, and its on an entirely different key.
It sounds to me like the computer thinks it in the usa all of a sudden.

Friend,

For 7 years I have been using the same keyboard. It I am sure is not US keyboard.

Since last night, it always did the proper action.

When I just want letter 3 it gave and still gives letter 3

And used to with shift key give me # pound sign

But now when I need pound sign instead it says number.

Sakina

Letter 3 by itself.

That’s odd, mine says pound sign as it should

I guess you are using US keyboard layout rather than the UK keyboard

When the computer says the word number in that situation it means the pound sign

Dear Gene and friends,

Thank you for your help regarding adding new email address in my people app.

I am sorry for I am not too clever and am still trying to figure it out. Sadly, I do not have many addresses and therefore would be happy doing it manually.

For now I am cutting and pasting the address in the to field.

Now today please I have lost my pound sign in my word document. I always used to press shift key and press number 3 for the pound sign.

Now when I press shift key and number 3 it keeps saying number.

I do not know what I must have pressed accidently on the key board as I am one hundred % user of keyboard and do not know what to do.

I will greatly appreciate any help.

Always thanking you all

Sakina
