INR or the Indian Rupee Currency Symbol was introduced quite a while back. Earlier an Indian Rupee symbol Font was released which needed to be installed on the system but later on Microsoft came up with an update for the same, enabling the user to type it using the keyboard shortcut. The update has been quite old now but even then, people do not know the right method to type for typing the INR symbol in Windows. Though you can find the rupee symbol on keyboards which are newly manufactured but not on all. Given below is the method to type the INR symbol using the Keyboard shortcut for Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Firstly, get the update from Microsoft. Download the update on the basis of your version of Windows. The update requires validation.
