We need to install windows driver update and some configurations. Kindly check this article. Type Indian Rupee Symbol using Keyboard Keys
- Download the Microsoft driver update which enable the Windows to detect rupee symbol. You can download Microsoft update which supports rupee symbol from here.

- Now your keyboard will be able to write rupee symbol.
- For writing rupee symbol now on wards use Ctrl+Alt+₹(4 or $ on regular key). The Keyboards without rupee symbol, can use Ctrl+Alt+$
Mine is Dell XPS. Left Alt is working well. But for Rupee symbol, when I use Left Alt+4, it shows
¤ symbol. When I use Left Alt+5, it shows
€ (Euro symbol). Here Rupee symbol alone not displayed.
After a long search I got the solution. In Dell laptop, if the symbols are not displayed this means we have to update the drivers. Go to Microsoft Support KB2496898 to download the updates and then try using the same key combinations.
If you want to print rupee symbol then it has certain codes that will allow you to print it, you can try now in chrome browser too. According to operating system you are using here i listed the codes
