    Typing ° on laptop. – degree symbols

    So I use the degree sign fairly often and on my desktop I could always just use Alt-0176. However with my laptop I don’t have the numpad so Alt-0176 doesn’t work for me. Is there another quick way to type it? I don’t want to have to copy+paste it every time (like I am currently doing) or use the Insert Symbol tool in Word.

    If there isn’t a quick shortcut, is there a way I could remap a key or something to have a shortcut?

    Are you sure you don’t have a numpad overlayed on your keyboard somewhere? Most laptop keyboards do. If so, you would hit NumLock, and then you can do your regular Alt-0176 using the numbers on the numpad. On my laptop keyboard, My NumLock is Fn+ScrLk.

    `Most laptop keyboards have a Fn key. Usually the “Fn” lettering is in a different color (often a darkish grey-blue) and usually there will be a bunch of other keys with alternate labelling in that same color. Holding down the Fn key will give any of those keys its alternate function.

    The most common way to implement a number pad on a laptop keyboard that doesn’t have a real one is for the top-row 7, 8, 9 to be the number pad’s 7, 8, 9; U, I and O become 4, 5 and 6; J, K and L become 1, 2 and 3, and M becomes 0. These alternate codes are accessible via the Fn key, and also become active if you hit Num Lock (not ScrLk). Num Lock itself might only be accessible via Fn.

    With Microsoft Windows, there are several ways to make the degree symbol:

    One can type Alt+248 or Alt+0176
    Note: “0176” is different from “176”; Alt+176 produces the light shade (░) character.
    Note: The NumLock must be set first; on full size keyboards, the numeric keypad must be used; on laptops without a numerical keypad, the virtual numeric keypad must be used (often requiring that the Fn key be held down as the numeric sequence is typed).

    In iOS, the degree symbol is accessed by pressing and holding 0 and dragging your finger to the degree symbol. This procedure is the same as entering diacritics on other characters.

    In the Mac OS operating system, the degree symbol can be entered by typing ⌥ Opt+⇧ Shift+8. One can also use the Mac OS character palette, which is available in many programs by selecting Special Characters from the Edit Menu, or from the Input Menu (flag) icon on the menu bar (enabled in the International section of the System Preferences).
