ASCII codes (text and chart)

ASCII codes are special characters, usually not available in keyboard. Programs like Word and Excel have facilities to enter them in a document by using their toolbar commands. But, in basic editors like Notepad, combination of keys in the keyboard should be used to enter the special character.

Press and hold ‘alt’ key and type the corresponding number (in number pad) given in the table below.

If you are using laptop without the number pad, you might need to use applications like Word or Excel to insert the "symbol" and copy paste it in the required place. You can also copy the symbols from the following list and paste in the required place (description credits – chexed).

An image version is posted at the end (in case you want to print and paste it in your room.)

5 thoughts on “ASCII codes (text and chart)

  1. I’m looking for the ascii code for ALL symbols including weather symbols and geometric shapes such as a small square͸ – solid on 4 sides. I publish some newsletters for organizations I belong to and as secretary I frequently need to redesign forms done by others in years past.

    thank you
