NmLk + Alt3 = ♥

Have you ever wondered how people use/insert symbols in their Facebook shout outs? I did.

While I know how to make the ❤ symbol (just type “<” and “3” close to each other), I have no idea how to make the black happy face (☻) and the musical note (♫)

I came across this bit of Microsoft Word magic a few months ago but wasn’t able to try it then. Since I’m not busy today, I gave it a try —- it really works!!!

Just follow these simple steps:

1. Make sure your keyboard is in NumLock mode.

2. Hold down the ALT key and enter the number on the numeric keypad. (Note that many laptops have a blue FN key that changes a set of keys, also with blue numbers on them and usually in the 7-8-9-U-I-O area, into a numeric keypad.)

According to the instructions that I saw, this should work with any Windows word processor, text editor, browser or email client so, go on, impress your friends, add a little flare in your FB status updates ☺
