How to Make Degree Symbol (°) on Your Computer or Smartphone

Do you want to type the degree sign but you don’t know how? Don’t worry because we are here to show you how to insert or type the degree symbol on your computer or smartphone.

We will also discuss the various ways to include the degree symbol in Microsoft Word and other software programs.

The degree symbol (or degree sign) is used to describe degrees of temperature, degrees of arc (in mathematics), hours (in medicine), and musical quality. If you want to show the temperature, you can use the degree symbol instead of simply writing down the word “degree.”

In mathematics, the Degree Sign is also more helpful, especially when it comes to degrees of intersecting arc in geometry.

Instead of writing 180-degree angle, you can write 180° angle. Not only you will save paper space, but it will also look more aesthetically pleasing. While the degree sign is usually used in science and mathematics, the symbol is not readily found in most computer keyboards.

However, virtual keyboards on mobile devices normally come with a degree key. To type the degree symbol on your PC or laptop, you will have to use a keyboard shortcut combination.

How to Type the Degree Symbol Using Keyboard Shortcut

Since desktop and laptop keyboards don’t have the degree sign, you will have to type it via a keyboard shortcut.

The keyboard alternative for the degree symbol is Alt + 0176. To type the degree symbol using your Windows computer keyboard, hold down the Alt key and then type 0176 on the number pad. Don’t type the numbers above the letter keys, only type the numbers on the number pad while pressing the Alt key.

The result is this - 0°. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Alt + 248. Hold down the Alt key and then type 248 on the number pad to insert the degree sign.

The advantage of this method is that it’s universal, which means that it operates with all computer programs such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Google Chrome, Notepad, and many more.

However, some keyboards don’t have a number pad. If that’s the case, you can try other methods such as the character map. More on that later.

How to Type the Degree Symbol in Microsoft Word

The keyboard shortcut method works with Microsoft Word and other word processors, but you can also insert the degree symbol directly in Word. This is helpful if you can’t remember the keyboard shortcut (Alt + 0176) and you prefer an easy way to insert the symbol.

First, select the Insert tab (next to the Home tab) as shown in the screenshot below. Next, click the Symbol button on the right side. After clicking it, select More Symbols. A popup dialog including all the symbols in Word is now shown. What you will do is to find the degree sign so that you can insert it in Word.

The degree sign can be found much easier by selecting the subset where it belongs to. The Subset field is located above the symbols, right after the Font field. Select Latin-1 Supplement as the subset. Select the degree sign ° to highlight it. You can see that its Unicode name is Degree Sign.

After highlighting the degree symbol, insert it into your Word document by clicking Insert. You can also assign a shortcut key for easier and more convenient insertion in your document.

To do that, click the Shortcut Key button and choose a new keyboard combination. The default shortcut key for the degree sign in Word is Ctrl + @, Space. To type the degree sign again, just select the Insert tab and click Symbol once again.

There you will see the degree sign ° in the recently used symbols. You don’t need to click More Symbols unless the degree symbol was replaced by other symbols. This method is also applicable to Microsoft Excel. However, you can also use the keyboard shortcut Alt + 0176.

How to Type the Degree Symbol on Your Android Smartphone

It’s easy to type the degree sign on your Android smartphone. Just switch to the number and symbols keypad by tapping? 123, and then look for the degree sign °. Tap the degree symbol to insert it into your message or document.

How to Type the Degree Symbol on iPhone or iPad

The degree sign can be found on the iOS keyboard, although it’s not shown by default.

To type the degree symbol on your iPhone or iPad, first switch to the numerical keypad by tapping the 123 key, and then hold or long-press the 0 (zero) key. You will see a pop-up menu with the degree symbol. Finally, tap the degree sign ° to insert it.

How to Insert the Degree Symbol Using Character Map

The Character Map is a useful little service that’s useful for viewing and copying all the possible characters and symbols in Windows. You can use it if your keyboard doesn’t have a numerical keypad.

To start, click the Windows Start button on the bottom-left corner, go to Windows Accessories, and select Character Map. On the Character Map dialog, look for the degree sign ° and select it.

It’s placed somewhere in the middle of the 6th row. Click the Select button and then Copy. You can now paste the symbol into any application.

How to Type the Degree Symbol in Mac

If you are a Mac user, you can type the degree symbol by utilizing the keyboard shortcut Option + Shift + 8. Press the Option, Shift, and 8 keys simultaneously on your Mac keyboard.

Wrapping Up

If you have trouble typing the degree symbol using any of the methods we’ve discussed, you can take the easy way out and copy the degree sign in this article. Highlight the symbol here ° and hit Ctrl + C to copy it, and then paste it on your document by pressing Ctrl + V. You can also right-click using your mouse and select Copy and then Paste.

MacBook Liquid Damage - How to Prevent It From Happening to You
MacBook Liquid Damage can be extremely difficult to remove. Luckily, you can prevent some of the damage by performing the following steps prior to any attempt at repair. 1. Turn OFF the water-damaged MacBook instantly. This is the very first thing that you have to do when you spill liquid on your Macbook Air or Pro even before you place it in the bathtub. 2. Hold the power key for at least five minutes until the power goes off and then release the key. 3. DO not touch the logical board of the MacBook at all - only use the mouse. Perform your regular maintenance routine on the MacBook regularly. Clean out all the crevices, the keyboard crack, the hinges, the trackball, and the backlight of the MacBook with a soft cloth. 4. Clean out all the crevices in the MacBook with the damp towel and cloth. When removing the laptop from the water-damage, make sure that the keyboard, the display screen and the logic board are completely dry before re-connecting them with the USB cord. The logic board of the MacBook consists of multiple tiny electronic components which are wired in close proximity to one another. With prolonged exposure to water, these electronic components get damaged and start to leak their respective liquid. In extreme cases, the entire logic board might get damaged and you would be left without a functional computer. 5. After thoroughly cleaning the MacBook and removing the spilled water, let it dry for a few hours in a clean area of your house. Once you feel comfortable enough to connect the logic board to the USB port, reconnect the screws and the keyboard. You may need to perform a certain amount of adjustments to the connection as you try to line up the screws again after reconnecting the keyboard and the monitor screen. If you find any broken wire connections on the back of the laptop, use the soldering iron to fill the holes. 6. Your next step is to turn off the MacBook and remove the battery, but keep the power cord connected. The liquid might have accumulated in the various crevices of the logic board and the keyboard and the touchpad. First, disconnect the headphone jack using the cut USB cord that came along with your laptop. Then, locate the three screws that are located on the bottom left corner of the laptop and lift them out. These screws are also present behind the sleep mode switch. The liquid spilled on the MacBook was caused by the leaky LCD screen. This is also the reason why the touchpad often has no response when you use it. To solve this problem, replace the LCD screen with the replacement part that you can find in your nearest Apple store or a trustworthy repair center like Ask Computers & Phone Repairs. Before going to sleep, unplug the laptop from the wall or floor. In short, immediate actions are required to prevent permanent damage of your MacBook Liquid Damage.
