Degree sign
How do you type a degree sign? Like 82°. Place your cursor where you want the symbol then press Alt0176. ° See, it works! Try it.

Did not work for me. Must be different that holding down the alt button and pressing 0176

Try this Alt + 248. 82°. Press the Alt key and at the same time type 248 on the numbers keypad. Did that work?

Nope, did not work but I don't have a numbers keypad on my laptop.

Rocky told us a while back how to add a degree sign to a post, but I don't remember what he said now but it seems to me that it was pretty easy, maybe he will see this and let us know.

This is strange, I can make the alt0176° & alt248° work from my side number keyboard but not from the regular keyboard with numbers at top. Unsure Confused

Neither works from keypad at top of keyboard.

Same here. Works on number keypad only.

Being computer challenged must be one of my challenges, because I can't get it to work.

It only (repeat ONLY) works with a keyboard that has a separate numbers keypad.

That means not on a phone, not on a tablet, not on a smartwatch, and not on a laptop with function-enabled numbers.

° See?

Are you holding the Alt key down WHILE typing the numbers? And leaving the + sign out?

Do you have any other codes that can intrigue us?

Don't feel bad Kent, I finally got home and tried it on my PC there, with the separate keyboard and it still does not work. One of the numbers takes we back one page, as if I hit the back button, the other number opens a new tabCrazy.

I get similar results, but I will somehow survive.

They are ASCII codes, but don't work with all fonts or browsers.

I keep this website bookmarked to remember other useful characters such as ˝ (Alt171) and ˛ (Alt253)

BTW, I'm using Firefox on Win10, and Times New Roman font. That combo works.

Not really. I just googled it. "Inquiring minds want to know." But see Rocky's post, he seems to know a lot of helpful ones.

In my writing days, I often had to use © and ™ besides the ° that this thread is about. Or &#8776;.

They helped when calling a &#9824; a &#9824;

Sorry. It's usually me that can't get something to work. They keep texting me how to get my paycheck info online and it never works. My forehead's a little bloody from trying. And I hate it when "they" tell you this is the only way to do it and that it works for everyone. Sorry if I was part of "them."

Notice that some of the characters in my previous post didn't appear correctly, even though they did in the reply box when I typed them. So it isn't foolproof.

Thanks Rocky, I have a few talents of skill but not the jack of all trades. Writing unfortunately is not one of them. I do know how to keep my hands dirty. Happy
