Change the currency symbol used in QuickBooks

QuickBooks uses the currency symbol specified in your Windows Control Panel. To change the symbol, you must change the Control Panel setting.

Detailed instructions

Note: QuickBooks versions 2008 and earlier do not support multiple currencies. If you switch from one currency symbol to another, only the currency symbol will change and exchange rates will not be calculated.
