Computer text symbols

Computer text symbols are just like usual characters that you read right now. Except they have different meanings, and some aren't used a lot, so lots of them can't be typed from keybord with usual methods. However, there are different special ways to type symbols from keyboard on Windows, Mac and Linux OS.

In this article I'll try to intoduce you to the world of computer symbols. I hope I'll do it well ^.^

I'll show you different things you can do with symbols.

Cool Symbols

Love, heart
Question, exclamation

I only listed a small fraction of my text symbols collection in here, because I also want to tell you about several other symbol things (see below). For a lot bigger list view All computer symbols if you're interested.


There is a thing called computer symbol generators that you potentially may enjoy. They convert your texts into text symbols, to make it ℓ◎◎к ℓḯḱℯ ṫнїṧ (encool), ʇı dılɟ oʇ (aboqe), or ᴄᴀᴘɪᴛᴀʟɪsᴇ your text. Several generators that I made can even turn your text into large text art signs. Don't miss your opportunity to blow your and your friends' minds.€ηḉ◎◎ʟ ¥øυґ ṫℯϰт❣, Яц$їfу їт, or ¿¡ʇı dılɟ

Whether you're an art lover, or not, note that I've got the most huge collection of computer text art ever. Here's what text art looks like:

On Keyboard

keyboard buttons with symbolsAs I've mentioned earlier, you can type symbols straight from your keyboard withought even copying. How to do that depends on the operating system you're running (Windows, Linux, Mac). If you'd like to find out how to do that, please, read my reference.

Do you know what time period computer symbols were made?
Different symbols in different times. At least from 60-s up to today. And more will be made available in the future.
