I hope this helps someone, it is just a little knowledge and timesaver.
Works on my laptop if I hold down Alt Fn at the same time ✈ ✄ ✌
Boo hoo, I can't make it work - is it because I have Windows XP?
Make sure your keyboard is in NumLock mode.
2. Hold down the ALT key and enter the number on the numeric keypad. (Note that many laptops have a blue FN key that changes a set of keys, also with blue numbers on them and usually in the 7-8-9-U-I-O area, into a numeric keypad.)
