How To Make Symbols (heart, smiley...) on Facebook, MySpace & IM Using The "Alt" key?


Valid until 31 January 2015 (unless noted)
You must be know about special symbols such as heart (♥), musical notes (♫), copyright (©), smiley face (☺), trade mark (™) and etc. But, do you know how to make these symbols? Actually there’s an easy way to create these symbols and it is fun. You can make symbols with your keyboard, using the alt key. Moreover, you can post the symbols on social network site / tools such as Facebook, MySpace and Instant Messenger. Not only that, you can also create symbols on office documents, such as microsoft word, notepad, wordpad, microsoft powerpoint, and etc.

For PC keyboard
Make sure you turn on the Num Lock. Use the combination (join) of "Alt" key and numbers on numeric keypad, not the horizontal numbers!
For example, to make a heart symbol, press and hold "Alt" key – then press 3 in the same time.

For Laptop Keyboard
Laptop users can also make special symbols using the "Alt" key as well. First, you have to activate the num lock, press Fn and F11(NumLk). Now your keypad numbers are M(0), J(1), K(2), L(3), ...and so forth.
For example, to create heart symbol, press and hold "Alt" key then press 3 (or L)

Okay, lets try to make symbols using the alt key
Alt + 1 = ☺
Alt + 2 = ☻
Alt + 3 = ♥
Alt + 4 = ♦
Alt + 5 = ♣
Alt + 6 = ♠
Alt + 7 = •
Alt + 8 = ◘
Alt + 9 = ○
Alt + 1 + 0 = ◙
Alt + 1 + 1 = ♂
Alt + 1 + 2 = ♀
Alt + 1 + 3 = ♪
Alt + 1 + 4 = ♫
Alt + 1 + 5 = ☼
Alt + 1 + 6 = ►
Alt + 1 + 7 = ◄
Alt + 1 + 8 = ↕
Alt + 1 + 9 = ‼
Alt + 2 + 0 = ¶
ALT + 0 + 1 + 6 + 9 = © Copyright Symbol
ALT + 0 + 1 + 5 + 3 = ™ Trademark Symbol
ALT + 0 + 1 + 7 + 4 = ® Registered Symbol

There are many more symbols, too many so I can't post them here :D There are sure a lots of hidden symbols. Express yourself with heart, smile, or other symbols and post them on facebook, myspace and IM. Have Fun :D

Very nice. I didn't realize how easy it was. I see these symbols popping up in Google Search Ads now and they draw a lot of attention.

no you make sure you use the numbers at the RIGHT of the keyboard. the little square pad to the right of the letters, NOT the ones above the letters in a line.
