How to use Currency Symbols ALT Codes

Windows has a very interesting way (or shortcuts) of typing Currency symbols that do not have a corresponding key on the keyboard. You can insert any Currency symbol you want by holding down the ALT key, typing the symbol’s ALT codes, then releasing the ALT key.

It is called the ALT code method. I consider this the best method for typing Currency symbols on Windows using the keyboard.

Below are the steps you may use to type any Currency symbol using the ALT code method:

  • Open your text editor where you want to type the symbol.
  • Click your cursor exactly where you want to type the symbol.
  • Press and hold down the Alt key.
  • Whilst pressing down the Alt key, type the symbol’s Alt code. (E.g. ALT + 0162 will give you the Cent Symbol)
  • Then release the Alt key.

NOTE: The ALT code method works on PC or Laptop keyboards with the separate numeric keypad on the right. If your keyboard doesn’t have this number pad, press Fn+NmLk to activate it, or connect an external keyboard.
