    Yes this is a Mac, but I have it on my Windows laptop as well.
    There are lots of different keyboard out there, depending on what kind of keys are used a lot in certain languages or countries. Such as having the ç on French keyboard and I obviously have a € key on my keyboard (it's under the 2). But I was very surprised to see that this | particular key was such a new thing to most of you!! I always use it when I write credits in the gallery.

    the key on my key board is not a straight line... but two vertical dashes... like a colon mark ( : ) but with lines instead of dots. Which is weird, since it is very clearly making a long single pipe line>>>> |

    Perhaps the middle has faded away? Leaving : even though the key is |?

    Ever read someone's hashtag post, but substitute the word pound instead? Yeah, that's fun. And did "Pound" come to the keyboard first, or the telephone? I wonder if automated voices will change their message from "Press Pound for more options" to "Press Hashtag for more options". :happydance2

    I'm not sure re: faded keys...
    according to Wikipedia - it was the number sign on the keyboard first - on phones it had to wait for touch-tone phones.

    ETA - the wiki article also explains that Canadian-English phone lines by Avaya change it from "pound" to "number" on their automated line. In Europe, "pound" is actually a different symbol - for the money.

    @bestcee see, not just me and my keyboard!!! :giggle

    I also checked my work keyboards.... my laptop has a straight line, but my bigger "plug in" keyboards have the dashed line.

    Ha! I just love your excitement over this, Anne!!

    I found it when I was doing Week in the Life one year. Ali Edwards did her posts like this "Week in the Life | Monday Words and Photos" and wanted to know how she did it.

    Thank you Anne! I was unaware of this and will now use it in my journalling |constantly!|

    and it is also on my PC keyboard just above the enter key but my right hand covers it up while I'm typing so I was unaware of it's existence (that's my excuse anyway :giggle)
