Have you ever wondered how to add a trademark symbol or a check mark?
Click on the cell that you want to contain the symbol. From the Insert tab, select Symbol. For the trademark™, copyright©, or registered® symbol, click the Special Characters tab. Scroll down until you find the symbol, select it and click OK.
For a check mark ☑ or infinity symbol ∞, click Symbol and then the Symbols tab. Scroll through to find the symbols. Look around at all the symbols you can use. You never know when one might come in handy!
Bonus: These functions work the same in Microsoft Word.
