When typing the temperature I would like to insert a “degree” symbol automatically instead of writing the word “degrees.” Is there a shortcut for this symbol?



Yes, there are two shortcuts for the degree symbol.

1. Hold down the ALT key and type 0176 on the numeric keyboard. The degree
symbol will appear immediately ° You must use the numeric keypad to
type the numbers and not the keyboard. Make sure that the NUM LOCK key
is on if your keyboard requires it to type numbers on the numeric
keypad.

2. AutoCorrect has a predefined keyboard shortcut for creating a degree
symbol. Press CTRL+@, then press SPACEBAR.
