How do I type ∴ on a keyboard in Windows 7? That is, which Alt-combination is it? I don't want to have to search, copy and paste every time I want to write 'therefore'.

Ddi you try? ALT-8756 (num pad) –  Ofiris Jan 21 '13 at 20:14
Which Windows? Which application? –  terdon Jan 21 '13 at 20:21
@Ofiris that returns '4'. –  keirbtre Jan 21 '13 at 20:22
@terdon Windows 7. Sorry, didn't think of it being different for each OS. And it's in Opera, my browser, but the num symbols usually work the same everywhere. –  keirbtre Jan 21 '13 at 20:23
@keirbtre no worries, you may be right and it is irrelevant but you (or, at least, I) never know... –  terdon Jan 21 '13 at 20:24

1 Answer 1

In some Microsoft applications such as Word, typing 2234 followed by Alt+X will convert it to ∴

Alternatively, you can enable hexadecimal input via the number pad across Windows by setting the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method\EnableHexNumpad to have a string value of 1. After a reboot, holding Alt while typing +2234 all on the number pad should work.
