I can type the Â£ symbol in Mac OSX but not in Window's 7 using parallels. The key shortcut on my MacBook Pro 13 inch is shift + 3, but doing the same in windows launches my 3rd task bar item. If I use the windows shortcut shift + 3 gives me a # symbol. A few google searches later and all I find are people wanting to use the # symbol not the Â£. (NB- i've been using the Â£ in thread by copy-pasting it). Any help is appreciated.
