How to create a copyright symbol

How to Type the Copyright Symbol © on Windows

On Windows based computers you can add the copyright symbol anywhere text can be added with a few simple keystrokes.

Press the "alt" key and hold it down while typing "0169" on the keyboard to create the © symbol.


Please note that on some netbooks with compressed keyboards, a "function" key must be pressed to access the number keys. For these keyboards, press "alt" then the key required to access the numbers, and then 0169.
