Bro! very helpful and usefull just got to be smart.

same yung nigga 2019-05-14 14:57:41

For everyone wondering how to use these, your computer or laptop must have a number pad. To use these codes, while holding down the alt key, type the numbers stated for the character you want and the character should appear.

Why? 2019-01-23 07:17:54

I've been using ALTnum for French accents for years on my laptop but all of a sudden ALT + num 130-140 & 150 bring up "read aloud" instead of the French characters. All the other ALT numbers are working as usual. What's happened to those ending in 0 ??

Emily 2018-01-29 10:43:22

thank you so much! now i know how to use alt 135.
(p.s. love the site)!!

Emily 2018-01-17 06:59:21

Thanks! This really helped me in french. Although, the Alt 135 didn't work. Would you be able to fix that? By the way, I loved how you put the capital one's and lower case one's in separate columns.

Hi. I need to use alt 0156 "œ" and alt 0140 "Œ"on my laptop but when I type the code I get a different shape like "I". What can I do to have these 2 characters added to my library? OR ARE THERE OTHER CODES I CAN USE TO GET THESE CHARACTERS? 2016-01-09 08:56:53

I have see some people use other fonts on the internet. I'm pretty sure they ARE codes, I'm just not sure how to get them.
