In the control panel of your OS may sure you have selected the proper keyboard for UK layout. At the moment it looks as if it is set to the US layout. Sometimes, if you have installed more than one layout, you'll also find an option in your taskbar where you can change the selected keyboard layout.

If you don't change to the UK keyboard layout and rather want to stay with the US layout, it is probably shift + 4.
