    Probably under the Insert and Characters list. Think you can add a shortcut as well so you can insert with ease :)

    I may be talking rubbish, but I'm sure someone will give a more accurate answer soon :)

    What about looking for a qwerty keyboard online. Shouldn't cost too much.

    Would have thought a new laptop bought sur le continent would have an icon of the national currency in an easily found place.

    Obviously the keyboard designer doesn't reckon the € will be around long enough to justify it having a dedicated key.;)
