Hi,
I just got a new Dell laptop without numeric keypad running Windows 10, and I am having a hard time adding the copyright symbol. I tried both the ALT + 169 and ALT + 0169 (this one is what works on my desktop) using the number keys on the top row of the keyboard) and it just beeps. Please help. Thank you very much.

Welcome to the forum. On some laptops the numeric keypad is embedded in the Qwerty keyboard somewhere around U-P-B-M You need to press the {Fn} key along with the {Alt} key to create the © symbol.

I think the alt 0169 only works with the numeric keyboard . At least that is the way it works on my full keyword (Win 10) ©

As a work around .... can you cut and paste the symbol from somewhere else.

Here it is (if any use in the interim) ©

The Charmap utility (still present in Windows after all these years) will allow you to copy and paste any glyph in the font - regardless of whether it has a keystroke combination or not.

Click [Windows] and type Charmap...

Thank you. My keyboard didn't have that and I tried it already, it didn't work. But thank you very much.

Thank you very much. Yeah, the Alt 0169 only works with numeric keyboard. I copy and pasted your copyright sign. Thank you.

Thank you. Ok, I found the map following your instruction. Thanks. I guess that is the only fix for now. Thank you.

Like the OP, my new Dell xps13 [ALT+0169] shortcut does not work, and it does not have a numeric or embedded keypad.
(In MS-Word the [CTRL+ALT+C] shortcut still works.)
I have seen Rikk's character map suggestion previously and appreciate his forum posts.
Upon Rikk's suggestion I have created a windows shortcut to the Character Map and pinned it to the desktop, so two mouse clicks gets me Charmap ( Taskbar Desktop / Charmap Icon) where I can copy any symbol from fonts. Great :cool2:
