To The Power Of 2 Symbol Alt Code Shortcut (Windows)

On Windows, alt codes are used to type symbols or characters that are not available on the keyboard.

This method is extremely beneficial because it saves a significant amount of time when trying to type special characters like the Power Of 2 sign.

  • The cursor should be positioned in the desired location.
  • Press and hold on to one of your keyboard’s Alt Keys.

The following rules must be followed for the Power Of 2 Alt Code to work.

  • Before typing the code, you must hold down the Alt key.
  • To type the alt code, you must use the numeric keypad on the right side of the keyboard.
  • The NumLock must be enabled because you are using the 10-key numeric keypad. When you turn off NumLock, the number keys become disabled, and you won’t be able to type any numbers.
  • If you’re using a laptop that doesn’t have a numeric keypad, you’ll need to activate the hidden numeric keypad first. On most laptops, you can turn it on by pressing the Fn + NmLk keys at the same time. A hidden numeric keypad isn’t found on every laptop.

Yet still, you can use the other methods discussed in this guide.
