Degrees celsius and degrees fahrenheit should be complete in one key

This only works if you use/have a separate numeric keyboard. My laptop has the number across the top and none of these codes work.

There is also this single character in charactermap: "℃" what Alt shortcut is that? (Regardless of italics/bold etc it puts the entire "℃" sign there. I just want to know what Windows Alt shortcut creates this single character (existing of both the circle and the C all in one go)

If you are using WORD there is an Insert function on the menu and if you scroll all the way to the right, there is a sub menu of Symbol, click that and there is a myriad of symbols to chose from including fractions other than ½ ¾ such as: ⅓ ⅔ ⅛ ⅜ ⅝ ⅞

For the degrees symbol ,press and hold the "Fn" and "Alt" keys and at the same time enter "654654456". This works beautifully and the numbers are so easy to input and remember ! Unfortunately though, I couldn't get it to work in this Comment.

@Animal Lover
When I find it cumbersome to do alt codes in a document, such as when I'm typing on my netbook, I just copy and paste a degree sign I find on web pages. Hope that helps.

how do you make a square?"

Simple, you connect 4 lines of equal length forming 90 [alt + 0176] angles going one direction until you get back to the starting point. Hope this helps. (someone wasn't paying attention in geometry class)

You can change your keyboard (at the operating system level). Here's Windows instructions: Be careful with this; if you change to a weird (weird to you) layout, you may have trouble finding the right keys to switch it back!

what does "alt" stand for on hp keyboard?

Sean 2013-08-27 21:07:36

@ Peter - I suppose the only fool out there is the one that assumes all keyboards are the same. They are not. Different countries, different manufacturers, and different languages have different "standards." To make things complicated, all characters are not available in all fonts, and laptop keyboards are also often more limited.

For the degree sign - if it is NOT on YOUR keyboard - use either Alt + 248 OR
Alt + 0176.

By the way, "Alt + 9 (on the number pad, and typically NOT the numbers on top of the alphabet keys)" is in most cases, a different symbol than degree - it is a '○' rather than a '°'

@Willis - There isn't a square meter symbol. You just type an "m" followed by the squared symbol (use Alt + 253 OR Alt + 0178).

I can't get the degree sign - goes to e-mail draft save?

Peter 2013-07-21 10:21:28

the easiest way is SHIFT + number9 on azerty keybs(or just number 9 if you got caps lock enabled). the degree sign is available on every keyboard so you dont need no alt code fool. nobody ever searched for the degree sign we all had it. youre the only one whos blind i guess

Is there a way to assign this symbol to a key on the keybord?

Jim 2013-06-07 16:01:49

ALT 248 is easy to remember because it is a geometric progression. If you're math minded.

You can also use insert symbol in MS Word to easily insert one

Tristen Horton 2013-03-15 17:33:26

For those of you that are trying to figure out how to use this, or any other symbol in a document editing program such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, or even Google Doc(ument)s, there is a tool in each of those programs that allows you to insert almost any special character into the document.
I will give you instructions for Word 2013 (Office 365), the process is generally the same for Word, Excel, and Publisher 2007-2010. In your document, click "Insert" on the top left, now on the top right there is a button with the OMEGA symbol the says "Symbol" and has a downward arrow just below it. If you click this button and click "More Symbols", you will be given a window that has a list of thousands of symbols. Select the symbol you wish to insert in your document and double-click it - or just click the symbol and click "Insert".
Google docs' method is somewhat different, just play around and i'm sure that you'll be able to find their method of symbol insertion.

alt+248 = splendid - nice 1!

theartistgscott - Thanks for the alternate (ALT 248) Every time I go to ALT+0176 I end up with a Google shortcut!

Ren 2012-12-05 06:37:57

press and hold the function button (fn) then press alt+numbers, that make up the (fn) number pad, hope that helps, I'm not sure how to explain it any better.

bev: fn (or function) is sort of like the shift key. You'll see little symbols on the other keys that are the same colour as the fn key (usually blue). If you hold the fn key and type with any other key, you'll get the blue symbol instead of the normal character. to switch languages (at least this is how it works on my toshiba keyboard) you hold ctrl and shift (sometimes multiple time if it doesn't work the first time. Anyway, I hope this helps!
