I have a Macbook Pro with a US keyboard.
When I run Windows 7 which sadly I need to can I get the euro symbol?
Is it possible to assign a key to do this, or change the dollar key to give a euro symbol.

If you run the character map program, you can basically pick a font. Then you find the Euro sign, and on the lower left corner there will be text like "Alt+0125" so that just means if you hold down the Alt key and press the number keys 1, 2, 5 then whatever character is represented by code 125 will be inserted.

Thanks Scott
I couldn't get the ALT+ controls to work on the Mac with Windows 7 - no problem with a regular PC on Windows 7.
However, you put me on the right track. In the character map I was able to assign ALT+4 to create the euro symbol, so in effect I can replace the dollar sign by hitting ALT and the dollar key.
Problem solved thank you.

RE: "In the character map I was able to assign ALT+4 to create the euro symbol"
So how does one do that in Character Map on a Macbook pro running win7?
I cat find any facility at all to assign symbols or characters to a key combination in Chr map.?

I am also running win7 on Macbook Pro and the biggest issues I have ia that the Alt+ decimal Character code mapping does not work. Whats the easiest way to get this working ?
