The Walk Wise signs wills show directions and routes to points of interest, the distance to them and the number of calories you burn if you walk there.
Karen Appleton, from Windsor, came up with the idea for the signs and finished runner-up in the Royal Borough's Bright Idea competition in 2013.
Cllr Geoff Hill (Con, Oldfield), cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "These signs are a fantastic way for people to find out a bit more about their local area.
"Far too often we rely on cars to get from one place to another, without realising that we can get to places relatively quickly on foot or by cycling."
The signs cost around £400 and were funded by a pot that was set aside for 2013's Bright Idea prize.
Eight signs can be found on lampposts near Homer First School, in Testwood Road, Tesco, in Dedworth Road, Hilltop School, in Clewer Hill Road, Dedworth Road shops, Windsor Girls' School, in Imperial Road, Windsor Leisure Centre, in Stovell Road, Home Park, in Romney Lock Road , and The Long Walk.
