The quickest approach to put the cent sign (¢) in your Microsoft Word documents is to utilize a keyboard shortcut. We’ll walk you through the process on both Windows and Mac.
In Word for Windows, enter the Cent Symbol
On Windows, there are two keyboard shortcuts for inserting the cent sign into your documents. If your keyboard includes a numeric keypad, use the first shortcut; otherwise, use the second. A numeric keypad is a keypad with numerical values (0-9) that is normally situated to the right of the major keys on your keyboard.
Insert the Cent Symbol Using the Numeric Keypad
Begin by opening your document in Word and positioning your cursor where you want the cent sign to appear.
Then, while entering 0162, hit and hold the Alt key on your keyboard.
- To type 0162, do not utilize the numbers row at the top of your keyboard. That will not work. The numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard must be used.
The cent sign will appear in the desired location in your page.
Add the Cent Symbol in the Absence of a Numeric Keypad
Open your Word document and move the cursor to the location where you want to insert the cent sign.
Hit and hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard, then swiftly press /C. (a forward slash followed by the letter C).
In your paper, the cent sign will display.
And you’re ready to go.
In Word for Mac, enter the Cent Symbol
To insert the cent sign into a Word document on a Mac, first launch the Word software. Place your cursor in the document where you want the cent sign to appear.
Then, to add the symbol, hit the Option+4 keyboard shortcut. In your paper, the cent sign will display.
If you wish to utilize the cent sign again, you may either use the keyboard shortcuts listed above or just copy the symbol and paste it anywhere you want.
In the same way, you can quickly and simply insert the copyright or trademark emblem into your Word documents.
