How to use euro and rupee keys on Dell Vostro 3460 keyboard? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The keyboard on the vostro 3460 has a standard US layout but the 4 $ key also has a rupee symbol and the 5 % key also has a euro symbol. How to I get the keyboard to generate the rupee or euro symbols? I tried every combination of ctrl and alt but I cannot generate the symbols. When the computer was new, the keyboard was set to us international, but it wasn't working properly. For both the ` ~ and ' " keys, the keys had to be pressed twice to generate a symbol and it would generate two. The rupee and euro keys were not working either. By changing the keyboard to us, I fixed the ` ~ and ' " keys, but the rupee and euro symbols are still not working. There are other posts asking the same question, but no answers. I'm presuming the keyboard should be set to some other layout, but the layout previews only show the unshifted keys. Anyone know how to fix this?
