How to write the € (euro) symbol on the keyboard

Some keyboards lack the Euro symbol. Here you can learn how to enter "€" with your keyboard. As there are several ways to write it, remember the one that works for your computer and use it.

On most computers, one of the following keyboard shortcuts will do the job:




Brief explication

AltGr, is the right Alt (it's written Alt or AltGr), the digits are those on the keypad to the right.

Press down AltGr, then "e", then release up "e" and release up "AltGr". Same for the other commands.

For the last two combinations press down the left Alt key, then press down and release up 0, 1, 2, 8, then releaseup Alt. The GNOME shortcut similarly.

If none of the those seem to work, instead with AltGr, try with Alt, Ctrl, "e", then release "e", Ctrl, Alt. You can also try the digits on the big left part of the keyoard.


The 'charmap' program shows the Euro keyboard shortcut There is one last way to find out your euro keyboard shortcut.

In the box that will popup, you will see different letters and symbols. If you select with the mouse the Euro symbol, in the lower right corner you will see the keyboard shortcut.
