    I have an AutoHotkey script running all the time. I added the following as a new line so the middle mouse button inserts the infinity symbol as a Unicode character:

    Code:
    MButton::SendInput {U+221E}

    Saves remembering the ALT code or opening Character Map.

    Hope this helps...

    Not sure if this will help you find it, but here's the Character Map for 'Arial' and where the right slider bar is for ∞ .

    Yes, something new. Some searches there require specialist terms:

    tilde, acute, grave may be better known and give numerous results, but umlaut is not recognised, whilst diaeresis is (double dot above character).

    Unfortunately the Help button is, as you might expect, useless. (Probably worked in Win 7!)

    Like nearly all MS products, notepad does support Unicode. But it doesn't support this input mechanism.

    The code is 221E. You enter it just lke that. It's a four (hex) digit code for a Unicode character. It doesn't work in Notepad (no Unicode support, apparently). It also doesn't seem to work directly in a Web browser (Edge Chromium, Chrome). I can use it in MS Word 2019, and copy and paste the result into a web browser.

    Seems like there should be an easier way.

    Wow...! very nice... thanks. And so many useful symbols, now easily found.

    I think my Character Map has just met it's match. And here I thought Win + period was just for those far less necessary emoticons.

    It's a separate keyboard and I do use the right hand number keypad.

    ALT+236 gives me "ý".
    As noted different language keyboard layout. On an (American) English keyboard ALT + 236 = ∞
