FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS How To Type and Insert Trademark TM, Registered (R) and Copyright (C) Symbols Without a Numeric Pad

Learn how to type in all the trademark and copyright symbols on a Windows keyboard with no numeric pad. 

Watch the short video below:


So if you've got a Windows laptop or any other windows computer without a numeric pad on the keyboard, here's how you access the characters. First, you press the Windows key on your keyboard. It brings up the start menu. You start typing character map and once it shows up there, just click it to open it up.

When it appears, click on where it says advanced view. Once you click there, it will open up a few extra options and where it says, group by change all to Unicode subrange. And when you do that, it would open up another dialogue. And it will default to Latin. So if you want to find the TM symbol, you would change it to a letter like symbols first. And you will see the TM symbol right there. So double click it, it would be added to this field where it says characters to copy, and when it gets there, you press select and copy, and there you go. You can paste it back into your document.

If you're trying to get the R in a circle symbol, you have to pick general punctuation in the group by dialogue, and again, here it is, R in a circle, double click it and then select and copy and for copyright symbol, same general punctuation. Here it is, double-click it, select and copy, and then you're done.
