Glad to know you all like the symbols, here are some more.
Honestly, you can sit and play around and find all kinds of things to do with the keys.
Remember to push Alt and hold while pressing the numbers.

171-
172-
123-{
125-}
13 -♪
3 -♥

Hope you enjoy these, too. Isn't it nice to learn something new every day. That is what I learn on this board everyday.

I tried and don't seem to get anything. Hold down the ALT key and press the numbers? Doesn't seem to work for me.

Perhaps it only works with later programmes, I have Windows XP on my notebook.

I use the degree one all the time, it's alt 0176. There's an alt character map in accessories>system tools in your list of programs. I like the heart! ♥

at one time, in the long ago past, you needed to enable a "keyboard" shortcuts thingy in your word processing program...don't know if that is still the case or not but if so, could be the reason some people can make it work and some others can't
