Install indian rupee symbol on your computer .

Fifth currency in the world to have a distinct identity. The Indian Rupee has previously been denoted as INR with no symbol of its own. From now on the Indian Rupee has its own unique symbol to identify it.Do you want to type and use new Rupee symbol using existing PC keyboard? This can be easily done by downloading new Rupee symbol from on your windows computer.

Use new Rupee symbol font on Windows PC.

1.Download the Free Rupee Font Version 2.0 from Foradian Blog and save it on your computer.

2. Then goto C > Windows > Fonts folder to install new font on Windows. User of Window 7/Vista/XP can simply copy and paste font file in ‘Fonts’ folder in ‘Windows’ folder for installation.

3. After installation, open Word processor and then press ~ key at top right (under ESC key).

4. Then select ‘Rupee Foradian font’, this will convert ~ symbol into newRupee symbol.

You can also add auto-correct for other font. As '~' key is using less so better to make auto-correct with ctrl+~ or alt+~ .

But since this is not a standard font, avoid using it when sending a document to someone else, because if the person doesn’t have the font installed on their system, they will only see a ~ symbol.
So, finally the India rupees symbol is reached to the status of dollar,pound,euro and yen.

~:D :D~

It all began in Plaza Hotel, New York City on the 10th of November 1983. Two Microsoft founders Paul AllenBill Gates officially announced their corporation’s first and next-generation graphical user interface operating system – Microsoft Windows. and Despite the criticism on stability and constantly being compared to their rivals Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows is still the most widely used operating systems in the world. In this post, I’ll bring you back to 1985 where the very first official Microsoft Windows 1.0 was announced, and then we take a trip down memory lane to see all boot screens and desktop interface of all Windows operating system possible.
