How to Get a £ Sign or € Symbol on Any Keyboard

Depending upon the keyboard you\’re using, you might find there is no £ sign or € sign. But it\’s no problem to insert that character into your typing if you know the tricks.

If you\’re using Windows and your keyboard has a numeric keypad – the section to the right of the cursor keys – then you can easily type any symbol.

Simply hold the Alt key and then type the four-digit code on the numeric keypad.

To type a £ sign, you would hold the Alt key and them type 0163.

To type a € sign, press Alt and type 0128 and it will appear in the text box or document.

You can also type the squared symbol or a degree symbol, among others.

That\’s fine if you have the right keyboard, but what if you don\’t have a numeric keypad?

Here are a couple of other shortcuts:

  • For the Euro symbol press Ctrl+Alt+4 together
  • For the Pound sign press Shift+3 together
  • On a Mac press Option+3

These can work even if your keyboard doesn\’t display the symbol on the number keys themselves.
