Oh dear - I shall keep to English UK which is more important to me !


Main differences between a US and UK keyboard:

- an AltGr key is added to the right of the space bar
- the # symbol is replaced by the £ symbol and a 102nd key is added next to the Enter key to accommodate the displaced #
- @ and ” are swapped
- the ~ is moved to the # key, and is replaced by a ¬ symbol on the backquote (`) key
- the \ key is moved to the left of the Z key
- the Enter key spans two rows, and is narrower to accommodate the # key
- on laptop computers, the | and \ key is often placed next to the space bar

What is this 102nd key ?
Where is the @ key (shift " ) ?

Here are the two keyboards for comparison.

This is the British one:

And here is the US one:

You can see where the @ sign is transposed.

I don't know what the 102 key is, perhaps you can count them and let us know? :D
