Sticki where did you find them , I don't know where they are please :o)))))))

3 Jul, 2012

 

if you left click on the icon bottom left of your computer you will find a box that will search for things for you, type in character map,

once you have found it you need to look through various font options ~ some have more pictures than others ~ this one is MS PGothic

☎ ☃

3 Jul, 2012

 

This is a great shot P - don't know how I missed it yesterday! I got my new phone yesterday and took a couple of beastie shots with it. I'll put them in a wee blog. Not as good as this though but pretty good close - ups.
Come on Sticki....how do you do those things???? I'll say pretty please :)))))))

3 Jul, 2012

 

Oops sticki - posted at the same time. Off to practice now :))

3 Jul, 2012

3 Jul, 2012

amy
Amy
 

Thanks Sticki , now you will think I'm stupid I can't see an Icon button on the left of my computer !

3 Jul, 2012

 

Go to start menu Amy

Search " Character Map "

Then scroll to MS Gothic

3 Jul, 2012

amy
Amy
 

I did that it came up with 4 options I'm trying them all

1. search for files or folders
2. on the internet.
3. using microsoft outlook
4. for people

Is it any of those ?

3 Jul, 2012

 

Start menu

Click All programmes

Type in the search box " Character Map" Enter

It should come up highlighted .

3 Jul, 2012

 

thanks pimms, i went out!!!

3 Jul, 2012

 

I found the character map and how to select the keys - I can't figure out how to use them on here. If I copy and then paste they just come up as the same font used on here.

3 Jul, 2012

 

Thank you Pita, not seen you for a while, I hope you are well. :))

Over to you Sticki ....Scottish needs your help

amy
Amy
 

Yes they are ☺ Thanks Sticki , I like learning new things ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺

3 Jul, 2012

 

me too, i only found out about these a few weeks ago

✻✿❆❁✾❂✼

3 Jul, 2012

 

Smiley's..... Snoopy wanted those !

3 Jul, 2012

 

I can't find "character map" on my "system tools", but I have XP and it might be different there. I can get into it via Word - "insert symbol" opens up the box, I presume that's the character map, but I don't know how to get into it otherwise

sigh, it won't copy into here - i did it in Word and copied and pasted, but no go, sigh

3 Jul, 2012

 

yes i tried via word fran and it didnt work for me either!

smileys are a bit small though pimms?

3 Jul, 2012

 

try wingdings - it's on the font bar. That has quite a few pics too.

3 Jul, 2012

 

ha, but i can get some with alt character keys!
☺☻☺☻ ¿ - only snag is finding the right number for each character! ▒▄▐ - sadly, the "character code" on "insert symbol" doesn't match the Alt character code. ah well, half a loaf, etc ...

I downloaded an Alt character file; the numbers only go up so far, being me, I wondered how many more characters there might be if one kept on going, I'm well into four-figure numbers now and still getting results. lol if anyone wants an Alt character list, I woin't be much longer sorting it out!

3 Jul, 2012

 

it has loads of pictures jane but i cant make them copy into GOY

3 Jul, 2012

 

well done fran!!

3 Jul, 2012

 

lol i'd daft, I don't know when to give up. just, "if up to five hundred works, then what about up to hundred? or thousand?"

I don't have character map on this PC, suppose I could download it, but sort of managed all right - up till now!

4 Jul, 2012

 

Neither can i sticki lol Jx
