How do I get Greek letters from my American keyboard?
One universal way to get the off-keyboard characters in Windows is to use 'Character Map' which can be found at, Windows Accessories> Character Map.How do I get Greek letters from my American keyboard?
Do you mean that the legend on you keyboard have been scratched off by your fingernails?Most of the symbols on my keyboard are mangled because of my fingernails.
If you have a US keyboard it will not show Greek letters on the keys of your keyboard.But none of my keys show Greek alphabet letters.
Are you talking about using the character map as I suggestedWhen I pressed Ctrl and v then instead of the Greek letter for Omega I got two words: (but not when typing here, it occurs in Paint writing as " "). Wait a minute, yesterday it typed the two words but today it does nothing.
What do you mean by Greek keyboard? Are you using a touch sensitive screen?Just now I downloaded the Greek keyboard into my Windows 10 but I do not know how to activate only a few symbols.
There are a few complications with using the numeric keypad to enter the character codes.µ Hold ALT and using numeric keypad with NUMLOCK on
type 230 then release ALT
I"m using Win8
alternative> run >CHARMAPI usually go to Google and type in what I'm looking for ("theta symbol", "mu symbol", "omega symbol", etc). I then copy and paste wherever I need it. It has absolutely nothing to do with what keyboard you have.
Let's admit spec that with the task at hand, also lot of patience and imagination.I would love to meet the people who design keyboards and man machine interfaces in general: they must have a sense of humor.
