There are hundreds of symbols, icons, and foreign letters that are not present on a standard QWERTY keyboard but still find daily use in documents across America. The symbols available in Word include copyright and trademark icons, umlauts, accents, monetary symbols from all over the world, and many more. To insert a symbol, click Insert, then Symbol. When the dialog box appears, scroll through to find the symbol you need, click on it, and click Insert. Click Close to get rid of the dialog box.
