Rookie Late Bloomer Discovers Keyboard Coolness♥

Look what I found.........(for non laptop keyboards).  Use number keys from the pad to the right. 

ALT + 1 = ☺
ALT + 2 = ☻
ALT + 3 = ♥
ALT + 4 = ♦
ALT + 5 = ♣
ALT + 6 = ♠
ALT + 7 = •
ALT + 8 = ◘
ALT + 9 = ○
ALT + 14 = ♫ Musical Note
ALT + 15 = ☼ Sunshine Symbol
ALT + 0169 = © Copyright Symbol
ALT + 0153 = ™ Trademark Symbol
ALT + 0174 = ® Registered Symbol

I can get this to work on blog and email but not a word document.  The symbol/shapes appear after you release the keys.♥☼♫

If you know of any others, will you please leave them in the comments section?  Thanks.


  1. I didn't know any of those. You rock for showing them too me!!


  2. I am laughing hysterically at the notion that you ACTUALLY may have hit the ALT button 179 times to discover them !!!!

    God, I love you ☺ ☻ ♥

  3. That is so cool...I am going to go poop musical notes all over face book.

  4. Actually I am not because I can't make it work

  5. Whats wrong with being bloonde..
    God I'm a dope..thanks for the tip. I am on a laptop and I think it works only with a keypad...I did a bit o research.
