How to Type the Degree Symbol on Your Keyboard

The degree symbol (�) is a special character that is used in many different contexts, from mathematical equations to weather forecasts. While it might seem like a daunting task to insert this symbol into your text, it's actually quite easy once you know how. In this article, we'll show you a few different methods for typing the degree symbol on your keyboard, no matter what kind of computer or device you're using.

The easiest way to type the degree symbol is to use the dedicated key on your keyboard. On most keyboards, this key is located in the top-right corner, just to the left of the backspace key. It might have the word "deg" or the degree symbol itself printed on it. If you don't see a dedicated key, you can also hold down the key and press the regular hyphen key to create the degree symbol.

If your keyboard doesn't have a dedicated key, you can also use a keyboard shortcut to insert the degree symbol. On a Windows PC, you can hold down the key and type 0176 on the numeric keypad. On a Mac, you can hold down the key and press the letter "k" to insert the degree symbol. These shortcuts will work on most word processors and text editors.

If you're using a mobile device, the process for typing the degree symbol will vary depending on your operating system. On an iPhone or iPad, you can insert the degree symbol by holding down the key and tapping the space bar. On an Android device, you can hold down the key and tap the space bar to insert the degree symbol. These methods should work on most mobile devices and apps.

In some cases, you might need to use the HTML or Unicode code for the degree symbol. The HTML code for the degree symbol is ° and the Unicode code is U+00B0. These codes can be used in HTML documents or in text editors that support HTML or Unicode characters.

That's all there is to it! With these methods, you should be able to type the degree symbol on your keyboard no matter what kind of device you're using.
