How to make the paragraph symbol (§) on your keyboard

You are writing an long article and want to organize your text in paragraph but cannot find the symbol? Just make a very simple key combination on your keyboard. Here is the procedure to follow on your keyboard :

Make the "Paragraph" symbol : Alt + 0 1 6 7

The technique : You keep the Alt key pressed (the key to the left of your Space bar), then you successively type the numbers 0 1 6 7 , then you finally release the Alt key, which will bring up the “ Paragraph ” symbol: §

If you can't manage to realize the combination, don't hesitate to copy-paste the symbol you find on this page at your desired location.

  • If you don't have a numeric keypad on your keyboard, make sure you have activated the function Num Lock If not, press the Fn + button  Num Lock.

  • If you do not have the function  Num Lock on your keyboard, try first pressing the key  Fn and then performing the combination with Alt described in the previous paragraph.

  • If you still can't do it, don't hesitate to copy and paste the symbol from this article to the location of your choice.
