How to access Euro sign

AlyceMAlyceM Posts: 4Member

I have an Acer Aspire notebook.  On the number 5 at the top of the keyboard, there is a Euro sign at the lower right of the key. I've tried as many combinations of keys that I can think of to get that key to type the Euro sign. Can anyone help?

    On my M5 the Euro is on the '4' key - therefore '4' + <Alt Gr>.

    You would use '5' + <Alt Gr>.

    (<Alt Gr> is to the right of the space bar.)

    Thanks, but that didn't work for me. Mine is an Aspire M as well, with Windows 8 (which I really don't like!!)

    ok. To be pedantic, I should have typed <Alt Gr> + '4' for €.

    So, you would hold down <Alt Gr> while you type '4'.

    If that fails then I am at a loss as to the problem.

     

    My M5-581TG also came with Windows 8. What a disaster! I'm now running Windows 7 Ultimate - runs like a dream!

    Odd, mine is a M5-581T as well and that doesn't work. Weird. Thanks, though!  Did you load Windows 7 back onto your notebook?

    I purchased mine with Windows 8 - I hunted around but couldn't find one with Windows 7 so I bought that and upgraded to Win7 (I don't see it as a down grade as Win7 Ultimate is around four times the price of Win8 and far superior in my opinion). I had tried running Win8 in a virtual machine on my desktop and was extremely underwhelmed to say the least.

     

    Have you tested to see whether you can type the ''¦' key with <Alt Gr>? (To the left of '1').

    I'm not sure what if anything that would prove though.

     

    Edit: Just a thought, have you changed language, keyboard or 'Change Key Sequence'?

    Clock, Language and Region > Region and Language > Text Services and Input Languages > Change Key Sequence

    (There is a setting there for 'Switch Keyboard Layout')

    1. Open a text editor or word processor.

    2. Hold <Alt Gr> and then press the <5> key at the upper-center of the keyboard.

    NOTE: Note: Some fonts and software do not support the Euro symbol. Please refer to www.microsoft.com/typography/faq/faq12.htm for more information.

     

    Alternatively the Euro Symbol “€” can be typed by right ALT + "E" (or, left CTRL + ALT + "E")

    Aha! I can get it with the left ctrl+alt+e. But still not with the key at the top. At least now I can do it when needed. Thanks!!!
