34 thoughts on “Three Ways to Make The Cent (¢) Symbol in Word for Windows”

  1. Two questions to see if you have answers:
    1) I have a touchscreen laptop arms when I went to Windows10, I lost the touchscreen options. Apparently HP doesn’t have a driver for Windows10. I see my laptop is currently available and it has the newest Windows and touchscreen. I feel it is a scam to get me to buy another laptop. I also think it should be illegal to update any system software that will disable much of these functionality of someone’s computer without at least a warning of what will happen. What do you think?
    2) what did you do regarding healing your meniscus and would this make you a candidate for stem cell injections again?
    Thank you,
    Joan

  2. I checked Word documentation to figure out how to insert the cent symbol when typing numbers. It’s nowhere in the Symbols templates, and documentation leaves much to be desired. Thankfully, I found the answer on Trish’s web site. Looks like her tech capabilities are far-reaching!

  3. Thank you!!! I don’t know why Word makes it so difficult to insert a cent symbol. When using the “insert symbol” solution (#3 on your list), I found that Word doesn’t include that sign. They have an upside-down one, but what good does that do?

    Thanks so much for restoring my sanity. I was blowing a gasket. LOL

    • Oh wow Andrea, so the version of Word for Windows10 doesn’t offer the cent symbol any more. Yikes! What nonsense I have to look forward to once I’m forced to update my office to Windows10. I’m NOT looking forward to it, of that you can be sure. Thank YOU for letting me know of this issue. I shared this post on my personal blog a few years ago now so that I wouldn’t forget. LOL, seriously! So, I’m glad others are gaining from this share too.

  4. If you have Japanese input installed, this works: select Japanese input and type sento
    You’ll get a ¢ symbol. Or just copy and paste this: ¢ – that’s the easiest. Is there any word add-in that would allow, for example, you type Esc cent Esc and you get a cent symbol? Esc degree Esc would give you ° and Esc gamma esc would give you ? That would be so convenient

    • Hey Benj, as for the Japanese version of accomplish this, I have no way of knowing if you are correct, so I will leave verification of what you have suggested to other readers. Sorry but I could not get what you have mentioned regarding Esc cent Esc or Esc degree Esc to work in my version of Word.

    • Hey Tony, in checking http://symbolcodes.tlt.psu.edu/accents/codealt.html#currency I discovered their suggestion using the Alt + 0162, but this doesn’t work for me either. All I get is the “Save As” window popping up.
