MAKING THE © COPYRIGHT SIGN

The trials and tribulations one goes through as a writer and vast and many, but for me one of the most frustrating for so long was finding the © copyright sign on my keyboard. I never did. It doesn’t exist, or at least in ten years of writing, I have yet to find it.

Searches on the web lead me recently to all kind of strange instructions which yielded me only grief, not the least being an instruction thus to press ALT 0169. DON’T DO IT! It flipped my entire system sideways, literally, a full 45 degree rotation of my entire screen and all systems within it. Quite aside from giving me panic palpitations, making me laugh hysterically and causing dizziness, I wasted over an hour trailing through my computers inner working trying to figure out how to set my screen straight again. If you have followed the same bad advice that I did;

TO FIX A TILTED SCREEN

Click CONTROL PANEL on your start screen menu.

Select DISPLAY

Click on ADJUST RESOLUTION

Click on ORIENTATION

Select LANDSCAPE

©

To make the © copyright symbol;Select Times New Roman in text options. Write open bracket – letter c – closed bracket, thus; ( c ) Write it without spaces, hyphens or full stops between the brackets and the letter. You will find the brackets above the 9 and 0 keys at the top of the keyboard. You can use caps or not, as you wish and it works in any sized font, so long as it is Times New Roman.

( c ) = © . Your computer will convert it automatically to the © copyright symbol.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Teazy~D!
