Want to write a quote but can't figure out how to make the quote marks symbols that aren't on your keyboard?

All you have to do is make the following key combinations:

  • To make the left quotation mark, keep the Alt key pressed (to the left of the space key), then type the numbers 0 1 4 7 and finally release Alt
    • So : Alt + 0 1 4 7
  • To make the right quotation mark, keep the Alt key pressed (to the left of the space key), then type the numbers 0 1 4 8 and finally release Alt .
    • So : Alt + 0 1 4 8

If you have a Mac / Apple keyboard, the technique is the same. The Alt ⌥ key can also be called  Option ⌥ but it is always the key just to the left of the Space bar.
