    Need to use the num pad.

    But, you can make them on your PC. And then burn them on a CD, and use them from your laptop.

    You know, if you click on Accessories, then click on System Tools, you can then click on Character Map to get any symbol you want. And you don't even need a number pad to do it. And if that is too much work for you, just paste a shortcut to the character map on your desktop and you will always have it at you beck and call.

    I still prefer to use the character map under accessories/system tools simply because I can never remember the other way.

    Both of them worked on my laptop.

    The trick is to use the embedded numberic pad that is in your keyboard.

    Turn on number lock and the keys in the area of "jkl" and around there become a number pad. Turn on the number pad, enter the code, turn off the number pad and keep typing.

    PITA on a laptop. I just did it to show that it can be done.

    I still can't do it. The Fn key is blue, just like the number pad, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I don't have a Num lock on this keyboard.

    Look around.

    NUM LOCK will be printed in blue somewhere. Mine is on the Scroll Lock key. FN + Scroll Lock = Num Lock.

    That is what activates the keypad.

    f64nd 5t! I mean, I found it! There is a blue padlock on the Scroll key. So, all you have to do is hit Fn and Scroll, then alt 167, wasn't that easy! Alt 0167 gives me §.
