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

Has this ever happened to you? You're typing a document on your Windows laptop, or maybe you're posting a comment on Social Media, or maybe you're creating your email signature and you're trying to find that TM or an R in circle symbol for a registered trademark or a copyright symbol. And it gets so frustrating because you can't find them anywhere in the keyboard? Right?

So you go out there, you ask around, maybe you Google, you find them eventually, but the next time you need to use them, you go through the same process all over again because you can't remember that.

My name is Andrei Mincov. I'm the founder of Trademark Factory, and I've used these characters probably thousands of times throughout my career, so I created the short video is going to show you exactly how to find these characters on your Windows laptop that does not have a numeric keypad.

THINKING OF TRADEMARKING YOU BRAND?

TRANSCRIPT

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.
