English keyboard signs and symbols

Please note that the availability of these methods may depend on the operating system and type of keyboard you are using. Here are some common options:

On Windows:

  1. Alt Keys + Numeric Codes:
  • Hold down the "Alt" key and, while holding it down, enter the corresponding numeric code using the numeric keypad. For example, Alt + 0169 produces the copyright symbol (©).
  • Symbol Key on Keyboard:
    • On some keyboards, you can find a key with a symbol (usually near the space bar) that allows you to access special characters.

    On macOS:

    1. Option/Alt keys:
    • Hold down the "Option" key (also labeled "Alt" on some keyboards) and press another key to generate special characters.
  • Character Viewer:
    • Open the "Character Viewer" from the text input menu in the menu bar. You can find and copy various symbols from there.

    On Linux:

    1. Desktop environment-specific key combinations:
    • In many Linux desktop environments, you can use specific key combinations to access special characters. For example, in GNOME, you can use "Ctrl + Shift + U" followed by a Unicode code.

    On mobile devices:

    1. Virtual keyboard :
    • Some virtual keyboards on mobile devices (iOS, Android) allow you to access special symbols by holding down a key.
  • Symbol keyboards:
    • Switch to a symbol or emoji keyboard to access a variety of special characters.

    These are general guidelines and may vary depending on the device and operating system you are using. If you have a specific need for symbols and special characters, you can also search for Unicode code tables that provide the codes for each character.
