How do you do a 'tick'

Hi all. I want to make a comment on facebook and include a tick symbol.

How do I?

Cheers Kev

Go to Character Map and choose Wingdings and copy the tick shown in there.

Thank you for your help. But you are talking to a 'ticko' LOL

Where do I find Character Map?

Start--all programs--accessories-- system tools-- character map.

I have character map now. I tried selecting the character and right click copy then paste.

All I get is an 'a' ;-(

What am I doing wrong?

You have to jiggle the Alt Gr key [to right of space bar]like you do to get € or any other 3rd charater

I think the problem lies in you not being able to change the font on the face book page. I think it needs to be in Wingdings for that particular character. I have no idea how you do that!!

As a matter of interest, if you press the ALT key and 0252 you will also get a tick in say a word Document or Excel, but you would need to have the font for that character changed to Wingdings.

TonyV: If I press ALT+0252 in a word doc without changing the font, I get ü.

Font = Wingdings 2 (not Wingdings). Then press the caps shift and the letter P.
