How To Make Special Characters Using Keyboard On Windows

I don’t know about you, but there are times when I am typing and I just wish I could use a symbol.  For example, the cent symbol.  I’ve seen people use them, but I never knew how to make them.  So, I did some digging and found out all the short cuts to make symbols using your keyboard on Windows.

I am all about typing shortcuts.  If you have seen people using symbols like the copyright or trademark symbols and thought ‘I wish I knew how to make those.’  Now you can!  Here you go!

Trademark Symbol ™ use Alt + 0153                         Spade ♠ use Alt + 6

Registered Trademark Symbol ® use Alt + 0174       Club ♣ use Alt + 5

Copyright Symbol © use Alt + 0169                            Heart ♥ use Alt +3

Degree Symbol ° use Alt +0176                                  Diamond ♦ use Alt + 4

Paragraph Mark ¶ use Alt + 0182                                The Cent Sign ¢ use Alt + 0162

Upside Down Exclamation ¡ use Alt + 0161                Smiley Face ☺ use Alt + 1

Upside Down Question Mark ¿ use Alt + 0191            Sun ☼ use Alt + 15

Female Sign ♀ use Alt + 12                                         Male Sign ♂ use Alt + 11

Eighth Note ♪ Alt + 13                                                  Beamed Eighth Note ♫ use Alt +14

Up Arrow ↑ use Alt +24                                                Down Arrow ↓ use Alt +25

Right Arrow → use Alt + 26                                         Left Arrow ← use Alt + 27

Up/Down Arrow ↕ use Alt +18                                     Left/Right Arrow ↔ use Alt + 29

I hope that these typing short cuts will help make your typing fun and easy!  I know that the next time I want to write fifty cents I can now write it like this 50¢ and not $0.50.  It is the small things in life that make me happy. ☺  Enjoy!
