Keyboard symbols on Windows
Want to type symbols? Making a keyboard layout that includes symbols. If you're lazy, you can just get my own custom keyboard layout. Another way is to use Alt codes. This method is a lot more popular, although, hell lot worse.
|Complexity||Building and setting up custom keyboard layout takes a while. But after you're done, it's the simplest way to type symbols. Just like typing capital letters with Shift key.|
|Platform||All personal computers. Desktop, notebook, netbook, palmtop.|
There are 6 different Shift states on your keyboard. First one is when you type with only 1 key pressed. Second one is when you also press Shift key to make capital letters and other signs (like dollar "$" sign), than you get with only 1 key pressd down (you would have typed "4" instead). Other 4 shift states are usually kept unassigned - they don't make any symbols.
You can assign all the symbols you want to those unused states.

|Complexity||Easy. But you have to remember symbols codes from Alt codes list.|
