How Can You Type Symbols Using Your Keyboard?

The way to type special symbols using a keyboard with a numeric keypad on a Windows computer is to hold down the Alt button while typing a sequence code such as "0162" or "155" for the cent sign. Other symbols include "Alt 0163" and "Alt 156" for the pound sterling, as well as "Alt 0192" for a grave symbol.

Other ALT codes include the dagger, which is "Alt 0134," and the base line double quote, which is "Alt 0132." More Alt codes include the ellipsis, which is "Alt 0133" and the N tilde, which is "Alt 0209" or "Alt 165." The O slash can be made by typing "Alt 0216" and the right single quote is "Alt 0146."
