Create Rupee (INR) symbol for keyboard.

Indian Rupee symbol has been launched but we still use rupee or INR. Because we don't have current rupees symbol in our keyboard so what? Should we have to wait for that?

The answer is NO, we are the developers and we can't wait at all.

So here I am showing you how to create Rupee symbol to include it in system char map.

How to start:

Have you listen about the "Private Character Editor"?

NO, not a problem we are going to use this editor to create and include Rupee symbol in system char map so we can use it as a special symbol.

About:

Private Character Editor in already in every system, is used to create symbols like sometimes we need a company logo so we can use it to create logo and can use it for further.

 

START:

So, follow these steps to create.

Start -> Run -> type eudcedit -> hit enter.

Now a window will open like this.

3- When you click OK a new window will open: Drawing window.

Now you have to draw Rupee symbol by your own, but first take an oath that you're not going to insult that symbolâ?¦ kidding J

Select the brush to draw the symbol because pencil is not enough to draw Rupee symbol.

I've drawn like thisâ?¦ (I know it's not perfect but better then to write INR.).

5- Now go to RUN -> type charmap -> select All Fonts (Private Characters).
