    Hi everybody! I was wondering if anyone out there knows how to make the copyright symbol. The C in a circle. I read about it one time and I have searched and searched now, but can't find it again. Thank you in advance for your help.

    In Microsoft word, on the top of the computer in the tool bar go to Insert, pull down the the arrow go to Special Character, click on this and it should give you several different symbols to use. It may not be on the 1st tab, so click the tab on the top of the sybol page to chage pages.

    In Word, go to Insert, Symbol and you'll find one of these symbols in the 'Wingding' fonts. Or, hold down 'alt' and 'ctrl' and then hit the 'c' key.

    To get the symbol here, put the character in Word, then copy it, and paste it :)

    Wow, you are all making it so much harder than it is! Copy/paste, MS Word, web addresses, oh my! :) It's simply Alt+0169.

    Press and hold the "ALT" key, then type the numbers 0169, then release the "ALT" key.

    Tee heee. For Macs it's hold down the option button and hit G.

    Macs are so simple:>

    Thank you - learned something new today.

    How about the R in the circle? What is the magic combination for that?

    For Macs it's Press the Option(Alt) and R.

    It seems that this will only work if you have a numerical keypad to the right of your keyboard - I have a netbook, which is lacking this. So far, I have tried some of the other alternatives, and they don't seem to work either, with the exception of Inserting a Symbol on my Word, so thank you for that.

    is Alt plus 0174
    also:
    is Alt plus 0188
    is Alt plus 0189
    is Alt plus 0190
    is Alt plus 0162
    is Alt plus 0186 (the degree symbol, like it's 80F outside)

    For Macs: (at least this one)

    - Press Option and the Zero (the row on top - not the keypad zero)
    - Press Option and the number 2 (the row on top)
    - Press Option and the number 3 (the row on top)
    - Press Option and the number 4 (the row on top)
    ∞ - Press Option and the number 5 (the row on top)
    - Press Option and the number 6 (the row on top)
    - Press Option and the number 7 (the row on top)
    - Press Option and the number 8 (the row on top)
    - Press Option and the number 9 (the row on top)

    Review: - Option and g
    - Option and r

    Are there others?

    Time out for a geek moment. :oops: Look on your notebook for the function key (usually labeled Fn in blue). Most laptops have an alternate function for many keys and there should a numeric keypad hidden on yours. The function key switches those keys to their alternate functions. Look for blue numbers on some of the letter keys. Usually M=0, J,K,L=1,2,3, U,I,O=4,5,6, and 7,8,9= 7,8,9.

    So, try pressing the Fn key, then hold down the Alt key and type M J O L (that would be 0163) and see if you get a sign when you release the Alt key (crossing my fingers here).

    Thank you everybody! I tried the Alt. and 0169 and I got the symbol. It won't work on here though. I tried it on an email.
