Computer Code Hieroglyphics

I’m pretty sure that’s not what they’re technically called, but it sounds neat!  Actually, they are sort of hieroglyphs.  There are all sorts of signs, symbols, and shapes like these: ☺,♥, and ▲.

Here is the super-easy how to:

1. Press down the “Alt” key on your keyboard (on the computer I’m using, the “Alt” key is just to the left of the spacebar).

2. While still holding down the “Alt” key, type in the number. (Example: if you hold down the “Alt” key while pressing the number “127,” you get this: ⌂)

3. You may need to use the top number pad on some computers.

Here are some fun starter codes although there are over 250 codes altogether.

To use this chart, just hold down the “Alt” key while pressing the number shown.






Explore and find way more codes by typing in any number while holding down the “Alt” key.

These symbols are fun to use.  You can do something like: ♪ Happy♫ birthday♪ to ♫ you! ♪

You can also use these as borders and dividers for pictures and text. Like so:


If this worked for you, please leave some “hieroglyphs” in the comments.  Have fun discovering!
