How can I type the Rupee and Euro symbols?

I have purchased Dell KB212-B keyboard. I want to use the “Rupee” & “Euro” symbol which is located on the “4” & “5” keys respectively. I searched the net and got an answer which says using the right Alt key will work but it’s not working. I tried all the Shift, Alt & Ctrl keys but no results. However, when I type right Alt + 0128, I get the Euro sign and when I type right Alt + 8377 the rupee sign is displayed.

How can I get the these symbols directly?
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

    Thanks everyone for your help but I have got the answer. All you have to do is to change the regional settings. Here is how it can be done.

    I have tried and it works.
    When the settings is in English US, only Dollar sign will come. Change it to English India, Rupee sign will come and then change it English UK, Euro sign will come.

      thanks for your feedback, the solution is little challenging so both Dollar and Rupee cant be shown at the same time.

    The combination for typing these symbols depends on your keyboard layout (that is, in Windows, not just the physical location of the keys on the keyboard). On my keyboard (UK), right Alt + 4 produces the Euro symbol, but Alt + 5 produces nothing.
    According to this article http://daxserver.com/type-indian-rupee-symbol-in-notepad/, on keyboards that have the Rupee symbol you can produce the symbol by pressing Ctrl + Alt + 4.
