You will learn how to insert symbols like ƒ¢♣ using the alt key and the numpad. I will also include how to put symbols in Microsoft Word.

Microsoft Word

1. In Microsoft Word, go to Insert tab.

2. Click Symbol -> More Symbols...

Alt + 0223 = ß
Alt + 668 = £
Alt + 95252 = ¶
Alt  + 65454 = «
Alt + 21232 = ≡
Alt + 95236 = ♦

Try typing random numbers! =)
