How to generate hashtag symbol on a keyboard

Posted on: February 16th, 2024 by Olu No Comments

Hi folks,

in this post I go over a few ways to generate the hashtag symbol (#) on your keyboard.

On a Macintosh, the way to do this is to press Alt + 3.

If you find yourself working on a Windows virtual machine where that combination doesn’t work, alternate way to generate # is by using a combination of Alt and the 3 and 5 keys from your numeric keypad, i.e. you press and old Alt, then type 35 on the numeric keypad, then release Alt.

That’s all for now. Till next time happy computing.
