Character Map

The Character Map allows you to view all of the various fonts that you have installed on your computer and to use these in other Windows applications. Some examples of some characters available through Character Map include:


As you can see, the Character Map can be a very powerful tool.

The Wingdings font is one of my favorite fonts. It provides characters not available on the standard keyboard. By using these characters, you can enhance your documents and make them much more interesting. If you single-click on any of the characters, it'll blow up so you can get a good look at it. If you double-click on a character, it will be copied to Characters to copy in preparation for putting them into your document. Once you have characters in the Characters to copy area, you can click on the Copy button to place these characters on the Clipboard so you can Paste them into another application.
