How To Type a Copyright Symbol

You can type “c 2007 myname” for a copyright statement, but you know you want it to look cool. Here’s how to type the copyright symbol as text on a PC or Mac.

How to make a Copyright C Symbol on a PC Keyboard (©):

Hold down Ctrl and Alt at the same time and press C
Ctrl+Alt+C

OR THIS:

Hold down Alt and type 0169 on the number pad (right hand side of your keyboard)
Alt+0169

How to make a Copyright C Symbol on a Mac (©):

Hold down Option at the same time and press ‘g’to get the copyright symbol.
Option+g

You can use these on a text editor like Notepad or Word. Can also use this as text on an html editor like Dreamweaver.

If all this is so extremely tedious you can always type a copyright the simple way like this: (c) composername 2009

    Computers are powerful.

  3. Please help!

    I have a laptop and have used everyone’s suggestions but nothin works. My NumLk key does not light up. I have tried the CTRL plus Alt (held down together) plus 0169 (on the numeric keys)..have also tried Ctrl and Alt (at same time) plus C. Neither works. I either get nothing or regular numbers.

    I want to be able to use the symbol with just an open e-mail, not with Word or another program running.

  4. I think that is incorrect. I’m on a Macbook Pro and alt/option + 1 = ¡

    However, alt/option + g = ©

    So use that on a Mac. I checked the info on the original blog entry and that is what is written. It is correct.

  6. Thumb tacks, masking tape or super glue. :)

    If you’re working in a graphics program, you would select text and then type the code to bring up the copyright symbol

    If you’re working with a photo specific program, there is usually a feature to include a copyright watermark on all photos imported.

    That’s two ways I can think of. Maybe someone else has better, more specific, instructions.

    I’m on a 2009 Macbook Pro OSX 10.6.8 and alt/option + 1 = ©. However alt/option + g = ¸
    Which OS version are you running?

  9. On a Mac, in TextEdit (and lots of other programs), you can just write “(c)” and it will automatically replace it with the © symbol. My question now is, how do you write “(c)”?! I don’t want it replaced with a copyright symbol!

  10. Ben, I don’t see any reason you would want to type “(C)”. Just use the copyright symbol
