        Use the number pad at right.

        While holding down the alt key, press 1. Then let go of the alt key.

        Paraphrased from my erased reply:

        This thread has explained a problem I've been experiencing lately - why I couldn't get the Alt+ function to work in Word. The reason is because I didn't have NumLock turned on. !

        But I tried some symbols both ways in this reply box, and it works both with and without NumLock here.  ↓ (without) ↓ (with)

        There are also some symbols that are created (in Word) by typing a specific number, then Alt+X.  It's really magical to see the number get replaced by a symbol or icon.  So cool!  That worked for me with or without NumLock, and it even worked with the numbers up above the QWERTY keys.  But I couldn't get it to work in this HP forum post box.  sad

        People just be very careful with those alt + numeric keypad options.

        To Rotate Screen By 90o to the Right, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (→) in Succession & Hold
        To Flip Screen Upside Down, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (↓) in Succession & Hold
        To Flip Screen 270o, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (←) in Succession & Hold

        There is also an alt + 4 digit number, but am not finding it. Same as I couldn't find it after I'd done it to undo it - at least not for ages - anyway it was hard seeing the writing on the screen when it was upside down!
