How to Make Multiplication Sign (×) in Computer

Don't know how to type or make a multiplication sign (×) in your computer?

It's very easy my friend.

You can choose any of the 2 options:

type multiplication sign (x)
Multiplication Symbol
multiplication sign/symbol

You have 2 options to make a multiplication sign

1.  Use the keyboard shortcut of multiplication symbol (×). How?

Hold Alt in your keyboard while pressing 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 upper part of the alphabet in the keyboard.

2. Just copy and paste the multiplication sign below: Choose any of the following (in different sizes).
×   ×  ×  ×  ×  ×  ×  ×
You can paste it anywhere you want.

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.
