How do you make hearts and other cool symbols show up when you clearly don’t have these keys on your computer?  There is a way!

If you have Windows, put your keyboard on NumLock, hold down the ALT key and enter the numbers below on the numeric keypad–

for a  happy face–1
for a heart (my favorite)– 3
for a diamond– 4
for a club– 5
for a box/circle– 8
for a clear circle– 9
for a single music note (very nice)– 13
for a double music note (doubly nice)–14

Have fun with this–because fun learning is forever learning!
