What euro symbol means

Euro Euro symbol EUR € is a currency sign running in most of European Union. Euro has it roots from the Greek letter epsilon Є and itยดs a reference to the cradle of European civilization (Ancient Greece) and the first letter of the word Europe, crossed by two parallel lines to postulate stability of the euro currency. The European Commission specified a euro logo € with exact proportions and colours, for use in public-relations material related to the euro introduction. While the Commission intended the logo to be a prescribed glyph shape, font designers made it clear that they intended to design their own variants instead.

Alt Gr shortcut for Euro symbol on European keyboard layouts

On Windows on some keyboard layouts, for example "Espaรฑola - Spain" you can make โ‚ฌ euro symbol with, for example, holding Alt Gr - Right Alt key - pressing E key and letting go of both. This AltGr + E combination produces a euro sign. On "English - United Kingdom" keyboard layout for UK / Great Britain it's Alt Gr + 4 -- I'll remind you that it's Shift + 4 for $ dollar sign and Shift + 3 for ยฃ๏ฟก๐Ÿ’ท GBP Pound symbol sign. I'm guessing it's same for most EU country keyboard layouts also. Note that you are probably only going to be able to type Euro symbol with Alt Gr shortcut if you have a keyboard layout of a European country - this only works on Spanish keyboard layout for Spain, not for Mexico, for example. To better find out what's available and not for your keyboard layout open an on-screen keyboard - you can find it by pressing Windows Key and when start menu opens up typing "On screen keyboard". On this On Screen Keyboard press Alt Gr (right Alt key) on it, or if that doesn't change much - press Ctrl key instead - yes, because it's Microsoft ๐Ÿ™„. If the keyboard layout did change it's going to show you what symbol is going to be placed when you press which key. Hopefully, you're going to be able to find the euro symbol among those.
