the alt- codes only work if you input the numbers using a keypad. if you don't have a keypad, you can look for the character map (if it's not listed under "Utilities", you should be able to find it in the 'WindowsSystem32 file folder - it's called "charmap.exe"). you can use the character map to fine the symbol you want, and copy/paste it in lieu of using the alt- codes. obviously the character map is on Windows machines - I have no idea about Macs.
hope that helps.

Does it work on google docs?

Fealing really... not smart..... 2017-12-08 04:37:16

Num-lock has To be ON for Alt + 0128 to work... however it really does on a united states keyboard with numpad.

Glen 2017-10-31 07:43:42

Ctrl Alt e
Ctrl Alt E
As simple as that.

Nice, thank you! I also seen some good Euro Sign advice on the Euro Symbol EU site:

dbw 2017-01-19 14:15:25

Many of the options above are not working for me in Office on Windows 10. I am able to use control-alt-e in MS Office Windows 10 to create a euro symbol......

noname 2016-11-30 00:14:36

on keyboard without numpad:
Alt+Fn mjk8

El Sie 2016-10-15 15:10:10

Very happy with the Logitech K480 icw my Samsung Galaxy Tab2 P5110 on Android 4.1. However, I cannot get a Euro symbol. Have tried various combis, like (Ctrl)Alt+(every key), (Ctrl)Alt Gr+(every key), (Ctrl)Alt+0128 or any other code mentioned on this site. Keyboard language is set to English/US/International.

FRANK DONKERS 2016-03-30 09:30:40

Ik heb Windows 10
Ook via alt 0128 of alt128 krijg ik geen euroteken.
Wat moet ik doen ?

Col 2016-02-24 13:38:46

Need to use alt 0128. alt 128 gives wrong character.

pixiebrownie 2016-02-23 19:17:02

I find it easier to paste into Sticky Notes once located in Windows 10

john 2016-02-14 22:46:49

Guys, you can leave the 0 out of the 0128.
So just hold ALT 128

Prasad 2016-02-12 15:09:21

These Alt codes does not work in Libre Office... coz I am using Fedora 23 64 bit...
I really appreciate for the answer but I think I might use Insert-Special Character-(in dropdown) Currency Symbols...

In Win 10, when no numeric keyboard (e.g., Microsoft Surface Pro 4) and with US English keyboard layout:
1) In settings, Time and Language> Region & language> Additional date, time, and regional settings (gets you to Control Panel> Clock, Language, and Region), Choose Language> Change input methods.
2) To the right of English (United States) choose Options
3) Choose Input method> Add an input method
4) Choose QWERTY United Stages International Touch Keyboard Layout and choose Add.
5) On Taskbar, if necessary right click on empty spot and choose Show Touch Keyboard button -- it will appear on right side of Taskbar beside time and date.
6) Choose that button on Taskbar -- keyboard will pop on screen.
7) Choose keyboard symbol in lower-right corner and select Eng Intl.
8) On that on-screen keyboard, choose AltGr -- the Alt button to the right of the space bar. It will light up in blue.
9) On the top row of that keyboard, you'll see the Euro symbol where the "5" and "%" used to be. Choose it, and you just typed the Euro symbol.
10) You'll probably want to go back to step 7 and choose Eng US, or you may have problems typing quotation marks and other symbols.
Many steps, but once it's set up, you only use steps 6-10, which go very fast.

Eric 2015-11-15 14:03:07

On a Mac, just press and hold down the sift and option keys and then tap the number 2 on the top row. That will give you €.

Jim 2015-07-07 15:24:59

When using the numeric keypad, be sure it is in Num-lock state (not arrow), or some alt keys will result in navigation! Alt-0128 (€) works fine in Windows 7 English, even in file names!

Dublinhead 2015-06-22 19:56:48

ALT 0128. Took me a while but it works. You have to use the number pad on the R side of the keyboard - NOT the numbers in the top row.

George 2015-05-28 15:16:37

Must have numberical key pad for windows codes

Leon 2015-04-17 01:31:37

Thanks! Holding the left-alt while pressing 0128 on my keypad worked!

Greg 2015-03-22 20:12:11

Here's the windows 8.1 solution, for those without a number pad and working outside windows, eg., in gmail: use the search charm to find character map app. Locate the euro symbol in your font of choice - note, it may not exist in each font. (I happen to use veradana). Copy and paste. Not perfect, but for intermittent use, it is useful.

Kenneth 2015-03-02 17:39:54

On Windows 7 laptop, as Thanos said, left ALT + Fn + 0128 using greyed keyboard numbers (m j k 8 on my keyboard) works.

Jim 2015-02-26 19:10:50

alt 8364 makes the Euro sign for me

chiara 2015-02-09 16:20:42

lori 2014-07-07 17:22:39

On laptop use Alt and Fn key
Use the numbers on the main keyboard

8300SFF 2013-04-15 08:17:30

to be more specific, the Alt + 0128 is not coming out in my MS excel 2010. It's functioning in MS Word but NOT in MS Excel. Had I dis-enable anything that this key is no longer working?

8300SFF 2013-04-15 08:14:18

why my computer can't make the euro sign? It used to be ok till lately... ...can it be lost?

Thanos 2012-12-22 12:57:35

@bestcoquipr 2012-09-14 09:50:43

I would've recommend you to also add this on the French alt code section since it is essencial to know it if you are writing in that language.
