Change currency in POS in Odoo 10

A currency is a system of money (monetary units) in common use, especially in a nation. Under this definition, Indian rupee, US dollars, British pounds, Australian dollars, and European euros are examples of currency. 

Point of sale is the place where a customer makes a payment to the merchant in exchange for goods or after provision of a service. After receiving payment, the merchant may issue a receipt for the transaction, which is usually printed, but is increasingly being dispensed with or sent electronically.

If we setup Odoo at our end, it will set default currency. But sometimes we need to change default currency due to specific reasons by our own choice currency. In Odoo 10, if we select any country during creation of database, it will set default currency based on that selected country. So it will display that default currency in Point of Sale. Now due to any reason we need to change that default currency. Let’s assume that we have set default currency “INR” and I want to change it now by “AED”. Let’s see how we can do it by following steps mentioned here.
