Now we will look at how to put a paragraph mark when creating a document on a personal computer. It must be said that with the undeniable popularity of this symbol, not all PC users know where to find it.
Let's start by noting that the paragraph sign looks like two stylized s's. This symbol was provided by the creators of typewriters, but, unfortunately, it is absent on modern computer keyboards. This fact raises the question of how to put the paragraph sign. In turn, the task has several solutions at once, which we will discuss below.
The first version of how to put a paragraph on the keyboard is relevant for many applications, including Microsoft office products such as Excel and Word, as well as the standard Windows notepad. To get started, make sure that the number pad, which places the right side of the keyboard on itself, is switched to the active state. If this feature is disabled, press Num Lock (special key). After that, press the key"Image" and while holding it, enter the value 0167. Thus, after you release the Alt key, the paragraph mark will appear in the document.
Using special characters
For programs that provide for the insertion of special characters, you can use the indicated tools. If you are working with a Word document, you must position the cursor at the location where you intend to put a paragraph sign. Next, open the "Insert" tab, and then click the "Symbol" function from the "Symbols" section in the toolbar. As a rule, it is located on the right side of the panel. If you cannot find the desired symbol in the menu that appears, left-click the “Other Symbols” item. You will be presented with the following dialog box. In the "Symbols" tab, find the paragraph icon, then select it with the left mouse button, and finally click the "Insert" item. Let's close the window. There is another alternative solution. After calling the "Symbol" dialog box, go to the "Special characters" tab. The above list also contains a paragraph sign. First, select it, and then click the "Insert" button. Using the same tab, you can easily set up keyboard shortcuts so that you do not have to open "Symbols" all the time. Highlight the paragraph sign with the left mouse button, then click on the “Keyboard Shortcut” item.
