    Type a Unicode Character


    Hello, I am using Win 10 version 2004 and build 19041.388.

    If I try to enter a Unicode character via the method Alt + <hex number>, then I do get a character but it is the wrong one.

    For example if I enter 2212 it give a 'n' with a squiggle on top whereas it should return the character "hyphen bullet".

    :)

    How to type unicode characters in Windows 10?


    I haven't the right keyboard available on my laptop, so I can't test this, but the way we used to do it was:


    1. Press and hold down the Alt key.
    2. Press the + (plus) key on the numeric keypad.
    3. Type the hexidecimal unicode value.
    4. Release the Alt key.
    This comes from:

    How to enter Unicode characters in Microsoft Windows

    Which leads on to this small utility:

    UnicodeInput - a utility to enter Unicode characters on Microsoft Windows

    Which I also cannot test.

    In Microsoft Word,there must be numerous published macros for handling Unicode - some will be better than others - just go to:

    microsoft word unicode macro - Google Search

    for loads of links.

    How to type unicode characters in Windows 10?


    With Microsoft Word, Wordpad and Notepad running in XP and Win7, you could type any unicode character by typing its number followed by Alt+X. For example, you could type ≠ by typing 2260AltX. This doesn't work in Wordpad or Notepad running in Win10; it seems to work in Word, but other codes don't work. Is there a way to type '≠' from the keyboard in Win10?
