How to type a caron char with a qwerty keyboard? I really need a blank space with this carot. I used the following instructions with no success. The opposite char, the carot, is printed on my keyboard keys.

I need it to work at least on Google Chrome.

  • I use a Catalan keyboard layout and I can type the Carot char over a space, like that: ^^^. I just need the updown of that -> the Carot. – a_maar Aug 20 '12 at 11:06

  • LoL, but it's a solution. Thank you !! – a_maar Aug 20 '12 at 12:15
  • It seems that without modifying the registry or changing the IME, there's no good way to do this in Windows. Probably the best solution is to use Wordpad and the Alt-X method in RedGrittyBrick's answer, then cut/paste the character into the application you need it in. – David Schwartz Aug 20 '12 at 22:56

    @senyortoni: But what happens when you try what I actually suggested in my answer? – RedGrittyBrick Aug 20 '12 at 11:20
  • It works. But I want to use it in Chrome for example. – a_maar Aug 20 '12 at 11:24
  • @senyortoni: Sorry, I didn't see that mentioned in you question. – RedGrittyBrick Aug 20 '12 at 11:27

    Does ALT+780 work? – David Schwartz Aug 20 '12 at 11:29

Just install KbdKaz 500. Using this keyboard, you can insert caron ^ by pressing AltGr+6 and then space.

  • That's the caret character, not the caron. Caron points down, caret points up. – Ricky Jun 28 '17 at 16:56
