I meant 9836, 9837, 9838, and 9839, which give us l, m, n, and o, according to another chart, they should be some other symbols, but I can't find that chart right now.

This is what I have saved in my documents:
Alt+
1-☺ 2-☻ 3-♥ 4-♦ 5-♣ 6- ♠ 7- 8-◘ 9-○ 10-◙ 11-♂ 12♀ 13-♪

14-♫ 15-☼ 16-► 17-◄ 18-↕ 19-‼ 20- 21- 22-▬ 23-↨ 24-↑ 25 ↓

26 → 27 ← 28 ∟ 29 ↔ 127 ⌂ 0149 0153 0161 0162 0169

0174 0176 0177 0182 0188 0189 0190 0247

Bear in mind, these only work with a keyboard that has a numerical pad on the right.

Wow LFF!

Wonder why some key boards are different?

My number pad is on the right so I will try these.

Now that was fun but I should memorize the most important ones.....it would take extra time to find them each time.

Copy what I posted, and paste it in a document. Save it someplace for easy access.
Laptops do not have a numeric keypad to save space.

Here's an interesting website you may find informative on the subject. It has many different tables you can save for reference, and also has an explanation how to use the codes on a laptop.
https://www.pcworld.com/article/3046116/software/how-to-get-special-characters-using-alt-key-codes-or-the-word-symbols-library.html
Checked out 9731, and it gave me a heart, rather than a snowman, so I don't know how accurate these are.

Doesn't work on laptops. On desktops, you hold the alt key while pressing numbers on the numeric keyboard.☺ Then release them both at the same time.

The numbers on the right hand side. One of the links provided also shows how to do it on a laptop, but I have no way of checking it.
