You have 3 options to make a multiplication sign:

1.  Just type letter X or x in your keyboard.
2.  Use the keyboard shortcut of multiplication symbol (×). How?

Hold Alt in your keyboard and press 0215

Alt + 0215 = ×

3. Just copy any of the following (in different sizes). You can paste it anywhere you want:
×   ×  ×  ×  ×  ×  ×  ×


Note: Use the Numpad (Numeric pad) located on the right side of your keyboard. It will not work if you use the numeric characters located on the upperpart of the alphabet in the keyboard.


Don't forget to save, bookmark or link to this page for your easy reference.

Take note: In terms of design, letter x is has a slight difference with a real multiplication sign ×. So use the one which is convenient for you.
Did you try the keyboard shortcut of the multiplication sign ×? Tell us in the comment below if you've done the shortcut.

Well, I could have done it, but, I have a LAPTOP. Not a computer. My laptop doesn't have the numbers on the right. It has it on the top, and it doesn't work there. Is there another way?

babypeache, did you use the numpad (Numeric Pad). If not, use the NumPad of your keyboard.

We can put multiply sign by using shift+8

Rajat, the * sign is usually used in programming or coding as multiplication. To achieve the actual design or layout of the multiplication sign, you can follow the procedure above.
