How to Get the Euro Symbol on a Keyboard

Updated March 23, 2017

U.S. keyboards are character limited. Since the euro symbol is not as commonly used in the United States as it is in other parts of the world, most U.S. keyboard do not have a button that automatically types the symbol. However, both Windows and Macintosh computers include keyboard shortcuts that allow you to type the euro-currency symbol.

  1. Open the document to which you want to add the euro symbol. Move your text cursor into the desired position.

  2. Press and hold the "Alt" button if you are using a Windows-based PC. While holding "Alt," press "0128" on your number pad (right-side of the keyboard). The euro-currency symbol appears.

  3. Press and hold "Shift" and "Option" if you are using a Macintosh computer. While holding the buttons, press "2" on your number pad to type the euro symbol.

  4. Tip

    On Windows-based PCs, you can also get the euro symbol by opening the Windows Character Map. This is located in the "Accessories > System Tools" folder within your Start menu. Locate the euro symbol on the map, then click "Select" to copy it onto your clipboard. You can then paste it into your document.
