How do people make a check mark using a computer keyboard

If you're using Mac OS X you can press option-v to make a checkmark. If you're using Windows you can use the numeric keypad & type ALT+0252 while in Publisher, FrontPage, Excel, Visio, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Word, or Project. You can also use the Symbol command in the same programs noted above: Click "Symbol" on the Insert menu (for Outlook use the Insert menu that's in the message window). Click Wingdings in the Font box of the Symbols tab of the dialog box and you'll find checkmarks at the bottom.
