# How to make symbols on the notebook keyboard

Your notebook's keyboard is capable of writing far more characters than it appears, such as "hidden" symbols. By pressing the "Alt" key along with several numeric sequences, the user can enter several different symbols. Known as an Alt code, these graphical representations reveal special characters used daily, such as the trademark (TM), trademark (®), smile (☺) and heart (♥) icon.

The biggest advantage of alt codes is that they can be inserted into any document on the desktop, even in Windows Notepad, even if the program does not have emojis. In the following list, see how to make and insert symbols using your laptop's keyboard.

If your notebook does not have a separate numeric keypad, the "U", "I", "O", "J", "K", "L" and "M" keys together with keys 7, 8 and 9, will perform this function when the NumLock option is enabled. In this case, the keys usually have the corresponding numbers printed. Check in the image below the distribution of the numbers by key.

Equivalent numbers of each key when the notebook does not have a separate numeric keypad

For the configuration to work, the NumLock key must be on, as already mentioned above. Once this is done, just hold down the "Alt" key and enter the numeric code corresponding to the symbol you want to write - a procedure that should also be adopted by those who have a dedicated numeric keypad.
