Word: Shortcut to Insert Trademark Symbol into Word Document

I frequently document trademark material. Here is the fastest ways to do so.

Inserting symbols into a Word document can be a tedious process. Fortunately, there are shortcuts which make using them much easier.

To insert a trademark symbol into Word quickly, you can use one of the following methods:

1. Type (TM) which Word will convert automatically to the ™ symbol.

2. Using the ascii method, follow the steps below:
a- Hold down ALT.
b- On your keypad, type 0153.
c- Let go of ALT.
As soon as you let go of ALT, you should see the ™ symbol.

This works on web pages as well.
