Quick keyboard shortcut tip for the EURO € symbol.

I see that many people are still not aware of the various ways to insert a euro € symbol into their various e-mails, blog posts, IMs etc. and so I’m hoping that these tips will help somebody out there. If you are one of those people, read on!

As I constantly have two operating systems running at the same time, mainly Fedora Core 13 and Windows XP, the way that I have found works nicely in both is quite simply to hold down the Alt key which is to the right of the spacebar, then hit 4 which is typically also where the dollar $ symbol is on my keyboards.

If you are on Windows however and the above tip does not work for you for some reason, try the next one. Again, hold down the Alt key which is to the right of your keyboard and then on your numeric keypad, type 0128 and then release your Alt key.

Let me know if this works for you.
