Press down the Alt & keep it down, then type in "0128" then let go !

Best of luck !!

On my Asus the Euro symbol is on 4 with the dollar sign.

Alt Gr together with 4 gives €

Using T I M B O's answer you have to type the 0128 on the number pad to the right of the keyboard.

For Word -type 20AC then hold Alt and press X

But it is easier on my keyboard holding Alt Gr ands pressing 4. My keyboard has the € there.

"For Word -type 20AC then hold Alt and press X"

Where did you get that one from? I tried it out of disbelief and it worked!! I also tried 30AC, 10AC & 00AC and got several different "odd" characters. Do you have a list or a chart of the available characters please?

Word help is surprisingly useful. Type in keyboard shortcuts for international characters.
Keyboard shortcuts will bring up many, many more articles.

That's just using the Alt Gr key and running through all the keys, interesting.

My Medion keyboard turned up these with the AltGr key ¦ € ó í ú é á
