The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update adds a very useful tool to the table: a built-in currency conversion function. The new feature is integrated into Windows 10’s calculator, allowing users to quickly convert various currencies in just a few seconds.

Meet Windows 10’s built-in currency converter

Ever since Microsoft launched Windows 10, one top feedback request was to include a currency converter function in the Calculator app. In the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build, the “Converters” menu comes with a new “Currency” section.

Since the launch of Windows 10, one of the top customer feedback requests we get is to include a Currency Converter function in Calculator.  Wait no longer!  As of desktop version 10.1706.1602.0 (included with the Fall Creators Update, available for update via store as we speak), you’ll find “Currency” as the top item under the “Converters” menu.

Windows 10‘s Currency Converter performs almost all the operations you’d expect from a converter. As a bonus, the tool also comes with elements of Fluent Design interface. Calculator’s Currency Converter also features an offline mode. This is a very useful addition for those of you roaming internationally.

Thanks to the built-in currency converter, you no longer need to download and install various currency converter apps and extensions. You can now use a single tool for all tasks related to currency conversion.

If you’re not planning to upgrade to the Fall Creators Update, you’ll still need to use third-party solutions to convert currency. One of the most popular currency converters in the Windows Store is XE Currency. You can download it for free from the Windows Store.
