5 ways To Type The Tilde On Keyboard
Microsoft Office offers a number of options for typing or inserting symbols that don’t have their own allocated keys on the keyboard.
In this part, I’ll show you five various ways to enter or insert the Tilde Symbol in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or any other text editor, for both Mac and Windows users.
Let’s get started without further ado.
1. Using The Tilde Symbol Key On The Keyboard
The Symbol key is usually situated next to the  key on most keyboards. You get it if you press this key. To type this symbol, first, hold down the shift key and then press the  key.
For both Windows and Mac, the keyboard shortcut for Tilde Symbol is Shift +.
2. Using The Tilde Symbol Alt Code (Windows Only)
Only Windows users can use this method. You’ll also need a numeric keypad on your keyboard.
If you still can’t type the Tilde Symbol using the alt code approach, just follow these instructions:
- Insert your insertion pointer where the symbol is required.
- Using your keyboard, hold down the Alt key.
- Press the symbol’s alt code while keeping the Alt key pressed (126). Numbers must be used.

You may copy and paste the symbol into your document by clicking on it below. Simply select it and hold down the Ctrl key.
In the advanced view’s Search box, type Low Line. The Symbol’s official name is Symbol.
On the character map dialogue, you should now just see the Tilde Symbol. To choose a symbol, double-click it. Alternatively, press the Select key.
After double-clicking on the symbol, it should show in the Character to copy: area. Click the Copy button to copy the symbol.
5. Using Insert Symbol Dialog Box
