I'm trying to enter unicode characters by using
Alt+#### but I'm not being able to.
In Registry Editor, I added a new String value called
EnableHexNumpad with value of 1 in
HKCU\Control Panel\Input Method and rebooted, but nothing has changed. What's happening?
I'm using Window 8.1, tried on Word, Notepad, Chrome, Visual Studio, nothing...
Any clue? Thanks in advance!
reg query "HKCU\Control Panel\Input Method"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method Show Status REG_SZ 1 EnableHexNumpad REG_SZ 1 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys
Edit: It was PEBKAC!
I was trying to type stuff like Alt+2075 (✅) without actually typing plus! Thanks to @JosefZ for clarifying this out for me.
