How can I use the ® (R in a circle) registered trademark symbol in my projects?

2.25. How can I use the ® (R in a circle) registered trademark symbol in my projects?

If you are using a Windows computer with a full-sized keyboard which includes a number pad, you can 'type' the ® (R in a circle) registered trademark symbol:

  1. Click inside the field where you want to enter the symbol, to place your cursor.

  2. Hold down the Alt key on your keyboard.  While holding down the Alt key, type the following on the number pad on the right side of your keyboard: 0174

  3. Release the Alt key.  You'll now see the ® symbol appear in the field where you had placed your cursor.

Note: If the steps above do not work on a Windows computer with a full-sized keyboard, make sure your "NumLock" is engaged. (NumLock is a toggle, like the Caps Lock.  Caps Lock allows you to type in ALL CAPS, the NumLock allows you to use the number pad to type numbers.)

If your keyboard does not have a number pad (e.g. you're on a small laptop or netbook), the steps described above won't work with the number keys above the letter keys.  This functionality only works with the number pad.

If you don't have a full-sized keyboard, or if you're not using a Windows computer, you can copy/paste the symbol from this page to your project:
