Currency Conversions

by Eric Wyatt
(last updated January 28, 2019)

A few weeks ago, my kids were doing a report on various countries. As part of their reports they needed to give the currency rate comparing the US dollar with the currency of their chosen country. With Windows 10, discovering the conversion rate has gotten easier, using the Calculator app.

You can launch the Calculator app by pressing the Windows button and typing (without quotes) "Calculator," then press Enter. (See Figure 1.)

Figure 1. The Windows 10 Calculator app.

You can convert the calculator from standard (default setting) to currency mode by clicking the menu icon in the top-left corner of the app window and choosing the "Currency" option in the Converter section. (See Figure 2.)

With the currency mode set you can choose from the currency you want to start with (see list below) and then the currency into which you want the amount converted. (As of this writing there are 124 currencies to choose from.) Once you have the desired currencies set, enter the amount and the conversion will update as you enter the amount.

The currency rates are updated frequently; you can see the last time the rates were updated and even update the rates by clicking the Update Rates link in the app.
