Writing special characters is as important as the other English words. But many of us don’t know how to type common symbols quickly. Although, it is very easy to type a symbol using alt code (on Windows OS only). So in this post, I am going to list out a bunch of alt symbols. So that you can better understand it and use it when you need it. So let’s start.
How to type Alt code?
First of all, you have to understand that this system only works in the Windows operating system. If you are using Mac OS, this list of Alt code will not works. Now to type code, you have to on the num lock, and by pressing the ALT key, you have to type the numeric keys using ten key sets.
A brief history of Alt code;
In the early 70s, the IBM Corporation developed a way to type the special characters that are not possible to type by a keyboard. They designed a set of code that can be credited by pressing the Alt and numeric keys together.
Latter Microsoft re-develop this and implement in Windows OS. This set of keys called ANSI and OEM codes.
Now, as the Unicode system is entirely developed, and almost every modern system adopt this method, the uses of Alt codes decrease. But still, now it is one of the easiest ways to type symbols.
