Dell computers and keyboards manufactured for the US market, like all US keyboards, do not have keys to type foreign currency symbols such as the Euro symbol (€). To maintain compatibility with existing computer software, only one key on the keyboard is devoted to a currency symbol, and that spot is taken by the US Dollar. However, all modern versions of Windows allow you to type the Euro sign using a short series of key-presses. Use this short code to type the Euro symbol on your Dell keyboard or laptop.


Step 1

Hold the "Alt" key on either the left or right side of the keyboard.

Using the numeric keypad, (the number row on the top of the keyboard cannot be used for typing the Euro sign), type the string 0-1-2-8.


Step 3

Release the "Alt" key. The Euro symbol will appear at the location of the blinking cursor.
