Alt Key Codes List for Windows : Type Special Symbols using Keyboard
There are many times when you require to type/insert special characters/symbols
into your word document to express the matter in symbolic representation.
There are only a few symbols or special characters displayed on our computer keyboards. However, we can use different set of key-combinations
to print various symbols like heart, trademark etc...using Alt codes.
This should work in any Windows word processor, text editor, browser or email client.
Make sure your keyboard is in NumLock mode.
Hold down the ALT key and enter the number on the numeric keypad.
(Note that many laptops have a blue FN key that changes a set of keys, also with blue numbers on them and usually in the 7-8-9-U-I-O area, into a numeric keypad.)
