While some keyboards may have a key for the Euro (currency) symbol most don’t. All standard keyboards have £ and $ characters but don’t make it easy or obvious if you want to enter a euro amount into a document. A euro symbol € can be entered however by typing in an Alt character sequence. To enter the symbol, hold down the Alt key and then, using the numeric keypad – not the numbers above the main QWERTY keys – type in 0128 and release the Alt key.
Alt key sequences can be used to enter a number of other characters, e.g.
£ – Alt 156
$ – Alt 36
© – Alt 0169
If you come across other characters you can’t easily type on your keyboard, try searching on Google for “Alt Key Sequences” to find the correct Alt key sequence to enter.
