Additional information on entering the SIP symbol

The above information is sufficient to insert a SIP character into a Microsoft Word document.

However, if you are not satisfied with this quick help, please read the following, because I will explain in detail how to place this or any other character somewhere in your MS Word for Windows.

As you may already know, the keyboard has dual-use keys for Windows and Mac. This means that the keyboard has symbols that are easily accessible as a second key. By simply pressing two or more buttons at the same time, you can easily insert these characters into your work. For example, if you press Shift + 7, the ampere mark (&) will appear.

However, the other characters are not entered as the second key on the keyboard. It makes it hard to hit. One of these symbols is the PSI (Ψ) symbol.

Entering text becomes very difficult if you regularly need to add some of these characters to your work.

But it doesn’t have to be difficult. Especially now that you are reading this guide step by step.
