How to write/type diamond symbol/emoji in windows?

The diamond symbol alt code is 4. Even though the diamond symbol does not have a dedicated key on the keyboard, you can still type it on the keyboard with the Alt code method. To do this, press and hold the Alt key whilst pressing the diamond symbol Alt code (i.e. 4) using the numeric keypad.

This method works on Windows only. And your keyboard must also have a numeric keypad.

Below is a break-down of the steps you can take to type the diamond symobol/emoji on your Windows PC:

  • Place your insertion pointer where you need the diamond symbol text.
  • Press and hold one of the Alt keys on your keyboard.
  • Whilst holding on to the Alt key, press the diamond symbol’s alt code (4). You must use the numeric keypad to type the alt code. If you are using a laptop without a numeric keypad, this method may not work for you. On some laptops, there’s a hidden numeric keypad which you can enable by pressing Fn+NmLk on the keyboard.
  • Release the Alt key after typing the diamond Alt code to insert the symbol into your document.

This is how you may type this symbol in Word using the Alt code method.
