On todayâ€™s keyboard usually you will see an additional character which is Euro sign. On my laptopâ€™s keyboard itâ€™s placed on key 5 together with % sign.
I always wondering how to type the â‚¬ sign by typing it on the keyboard and not using Microsoft Wordâ€™s Insert > Symbol function. I already ask some of my friends, including friends that came from European country, but nobody knows.
I decide to do some searching on Google and found an article on Wikipedia titled: â€œKeyboarding the Euro Signâ€. The article said that you can type â‚¬ sign by pressing Alt + 0128 if you are using Microsoft Windows US English version. It also said that you can do Ctrl + Alt + 5, but it doesnâ€™t work on my laptop.
One remark from me is: if you are using laptop then you should turn on the Num Lock first before you using the Alt + 0128 combination keys. I already tried using the number keys on top of the character keys and it doesnâ€™t work. You should use the numeric keypad.
Another web page that I got from the search result is H2G2 website from BBC UK. It said that you can use Ctrl + Alt + e to type Euro sign and it does work on my laptop.
