How to Type the Euro Symbol on a Qwerty Keyboard

Updated April 17, 2017

A Qwerty keyboard gets its name from the first six letters in the top row of the keyboard: Q, W, E, R, T and Y. Beyond typing the letters, numbers and special characters you see printed on the keys themselves, you can also use combinations of these keys to type hundreds of additional characters, such as the Euro currency symbol. Typing a Euro symbol involves the numeric keyboard, also known as the grid of numbers usually found on the right side of a Qwerty keyboard.

  1. Click inside any area of your computer capable of receiving text input, such as a textbox on a website or a word-processing document.

  2. Hold down the "Alt" key and type "0128" on your numeric keypad.

  3. Release the "Alt" key. The Euro currency symbol appears.

  4. Tip

    Most laptop keyboards do not have separate numeric keypads, but you can see a separate set of numbers printed in a different colour on certain keys. Usually you can access these keys by holding down the "Function" or "Fn" button. Consult your laptop manual if you have trouble accessing a numeric keypad.
