Using ALT codes - On Windows

(push and hold the ALT key while type these number sequences--if your laptop doesn't have a number pad you may bed to use a "fn" key as well.)

*NB: After experimenting with some laptops, it seems that even using the “fn” key doesn’t work with some of these and you may want to plug a full keyboard (with number pad) into the laptop.
