You have two 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 = ×

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