    If you would like to make the ° symbol when typing, you can use these methods:
    On PCs – hold down the Alt key and on the numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard, type 0176, or Alt+ 248 When you release the Alt Key, a ° should be there.

    On Macs – option shift 8.

    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.
