For Microsoft Windows, Unicode characters can be inputted using the character's decimal value or hexadecimal value. The numeric keypad mentioned below is the keypad on the right side of the keyboard of a full size keyboard. On a notebook or laptop, the keypad are the keys with little numbers beside the letters.

Switch 'Num Lock' on first.

Steps to input Unicode characters.

Decimal value[edit]

This is the easiest and most universal.

  1. . Press and hold down the Alt key.
  2. . Type the decimal value on the numeric keypad.
  3. . Release the Alt key.

For example,

  • ALT(Holding...) 0162 then release ALT = ¢ Cent sign
  • ALT(Holding...) 0163 then release ALT = £ British Pound
  • ALT(Holding...) 0164 then release ALT = ¥ Japanese Yen
  • ALT(Holding...) 0165 then release ALT = € Euro currency

Hexadecimal value (hex)[edit]

Not all Unicode characters can be inputted using decimal value. In that case Hexadecimal value is used. Changing Registry is needed for this to work. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method, set EnableHexNumpad to "1". Then, set the type to be REG_SZ.

  1. . Press and hold down the Alt key.
  2. . Press the + (plus) key on the numeric keypad.
  3. . Type the hexadecimal unicode value.
  4. . Release the Alt key.

For example,

  • ALT(Holding...) +24B7 then release ALT = Ⓑ CIRCLED LATIN CAPITAL LETTER B
