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 = ×

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.

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