Make sure you hit them at the same time. You can keep going too, to see what else comes up by hitting alt and then the next numbers."

Uh-oh, when you get to '7', DG goes away and your homepage comes up! So the figures above are 1-9, skipping 7. The zero does nothing--LOL

Alt 8 goes one line up

youre holding down the alt key while hitting the number pad key at the same time?

when I do the music notes, I hold down the alt key type 13 on the number pad and then after I lift off the alt key the symbol shows up...

Num Lock on. Alt key down while typing any number...still nothing. Gotta be this OLD windows 98 thing!

alt 13 just gives me next line down.
even with num lock off. course, if I don't hold alt down, get actual number...13

This is Dave's special smiley that he revealed to everyone in the Daves Garden Forum a while back. Somewhere in the DG FAQ there is basic info on how to do things like bold and italics and such. Other than that I'm not aware of any others. There are web sites where you can download all kinds of emoticons, but I don't think they work here at DG.

Don't forget to check your character map...press "start", then, "all programs", then, "character map", then selct what you want then go to where you wwant to insert in, then press "edit", then "paste", and it will appear.

Does this look like a tomato? Ѽ

Once you access the character map, does it then become more accessible by just pushing the button to look at all programs? Once I have done that, it stays there unless so many things have been called up after it that it would not have priority.

I had not considered the pumpkin...☺

Just a test, & a reminder note to myself (or anyone else this might help). . .

First: Remember to press the NUMBER LOCK KEY.

Apparently, the combinations of numbers (& characters) are ENDLESS as long as you RELEASE THE ALT KEY between each set of numbers (between each character).

The SUN character is Really Cool! ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ (alt plus 15).

After a while, I lost interest (short attention span???), but I was typing numbers over 100,000 & still getting characters, although there are long spans (don't remember where) when all you get are large letters or numbers in sequence.

The problem with all those combinations is I don't have a clue which numbers created which characters!!

I have a Macbook and was playing with key combinations. They just came up. ✞ I've had this for 3 yrs now and never knew I could do these until now. There are many many different ones. ☕ I'm not sure how you would get them on a PC. Try alt and T together. See if that gets you a cross. †

Evelyn, did you do anything different to get that yellow smiley?

As recent as July 24th (in this thread) I was doing some testing and it showed up just fine. Now when I type 6 underscore 6 with the shift key pressed the whole time, I get what's on the keys, not the smiley face...^_^ (unless after hitting "send" it changes to a "smiley face"). It doesn't show up when I click on "preview".

I'll see if it changes after hitting "send".

Edited to say...AHA! It doesn't show up until you actually hit "send" so there isn't a way to pre-check it. Thanks...My mistake!

Even though there are tons of sites showing the ALT charts plus I can also choose Special Characters from a list of fonts (but not online), for the Alt + Numbers Characters this is a chart I like because it shows up well and is easy to read.

Evelyn - to be honest, since my husband has upgraded our computer a couple of times, I couldn't say exactly what we have right now. We're running XP, but are planning on purchasing a new computer in the near future with Windows 7...with the Windows 8 upgrade...or just wait for 8. Just out of curiosity...why?

Just because computer with different OS's do different things, or have slightly different ways of doing them. Do you have a character map? (Click on the "start button" area and type in character and it will bring it up, if you have one.) There you will find more than enough fonts, characters, and "wing dings"...

On other computers, it is called a "bit map".

I still have Win Vista and have kept Explorer 8 since I preferred it ove EX 9. Maybe, eventually I will have to update it, but for now, it works just fine.

Thanks! I appreciate it but right now I'm not having any luck. If I go into the fonts in Works I can find all the characters I could ever use, but then I'd have to transfer them to a thread, somehow, which is more hassle than it's worth. Since we plan to get a new computer soon, maybe I'll check then. In the meantime, I'm fine with the ALT chart.

Thanks, anyway!

Yes. It doesn't automatically bring up a box to type into. I have to go through assorted steps then it either found nothing or gave me an "error" message. It's not really that important to me right now, though, so it's okay.
