Now, I will show you all the easy ways to type or insert left-right arrow sign anywhere on your Windows PC (such as Word or Excel, or PowerPoint).

Without any further delay, below are the methods explained in detail.

Method #1: Typing a Left-right arrow sign/symbol on keyboard

Using Alt code Shortcut for Left-right arrow sign /symbol for windows

Windows has several shortcuts for symbols, some of which work only in Microsoft Word. However, there’s a Windows shortcut for the left-right arrow sign that works across all applications. It is the alt code shortcut which is Alt+29.

Now, I’ll further explain the alt code shortcut for the left-right arrow sign/symbol.

Method #2: Typing a Left-right arrow sign/symbol on keyboard

Left-right arrow sign Alt Code (Windows)

The left-right arrow sign symbol alt code is 29.

Every symbol in Word has a unique code that you can use to insert the symbol into your document. This code is known as “alt code”.

Below are the steps to type the left-right arrow symbol on your keyboard by using the alt code mentioned above:

  • Press the num lock key to enable the numeric keypad. Use Fn key + NumLk keys to turn on Num Lock on laptops without the numeric keypad.
  • Press and hold the alt key and type 29 using the numeric keypad.
  • After typing the alt code (i.e., 29), release the [Alt] key.

Once you’ll release the alt key, the left-right arrow sign will appear in your document.

Method #3: Typing a Left-right arrow sign/symbol on keyboard

Using insert symbol dialog

This approach isn’t as straightforward as the shortcut methods. But it’s fairly simple.

And once you get the symbol into your document, you can always copy and paste it again when you need it into your document.

Below are the steps to insert the left-right arrow sign/symbol in Word using the insert symbol dialog.

  • Go to the Insert tab.

Insert tab in Word

  • On the insert tab, click the symbol button and choose more symbol…

These few clicks will bring up the symbol dialog box.

  • Under the symbol’s tab, in the font drop-down list, type and select Segoe UI Symbol. Now, type 2194 in the character code field. Once you’ll the character code, you’ll get the left-right arrow sign selected.
  • Click on the insert button.

  • Alternatively, double-clicking on the left-right arrow sign will also insert the symbol into your document.
  • Click the close button.

This is how you may insert a left-right arrow sign text in Word using the insert symbol dialog.

Method #4: Typing a Left-right arrow sign/symbol on keyboard

Word’s AutoCorrect for the Left-right arrow sign/Symbol Text

You can also type the left-right arrow sign/symbol text using the autocorrect feature in Word. It is a feature in MS Word designed for correcting spelling mistakes like thsi to this.

Using this autocorrect feature, you can assign a shortcode to the left-right arrow sign (such as LRTT). This way, whenever you type the text LRTT, Word will think that you actually wanted to type ↔ and will convert it into the left-right arrow sign for you automatically.

  • Click add, and then hit the OK button.

Now, word will automatically insert the left-right arrow sign into your document whenever you type LRTT.

Things you should remember before using the autocorrect feature in Word

Below are some things to take into consideration when you are using the autocorrect method to insert the left-right arrow sign.

  • Autocorrect is case-sensitive. Meaning if you type lrtt (in lowercase), Word will not convert it into the left-right arrow sign unless you type LRTT (in uppercase).
  • If there is any text before or after the autocorrect text, Word will consider the autocorrect text as part of the text and hence will not convert it to the right-angle sign. For example, GetLRTT (without space) will not get converted, but Get RGTT (with space) will get converted to Get ↔.

Method #5: Typing a Left-right arrow sign/symbol on keyboard

Copy and paste the Left-right arrow symbol text

You can simply copy the left-right arrow sign given below and paste it into your document.

My favorite method for inserting symbol which I can’t easily type is copy and paste.

With this method, all you need to do is google the symbol you need to type, then copy it from one of the search results provided. Once you get the symbol into your document, you can always recopy and paste it as and when the need arises.

There is another way to copy this and any other symbol on Windows. It involves using the Windows character map.

Obey the steps below to copy and paste any symbol using the character map.

  • Search for the character map app by clicking on the start button.

  • The character map app will show up in the search results. Click on it to launch.
  • After the character map window opens up, click to check the advance view checkbox to expand the window for more advanced options.

  • On the advanced view section, type the left-right arrow in the search box.
  • The symbol you searched for (i.e., the left-right arrow) will now appear on the character map. Double click on it to select it. You’ll see that the symbol appears in the characters to copy text box. This allows you to select and copy several symbols at the same time.

  • After selecting the symbol, you wish to copy, click on the copy button.
  • Switch over to wherever you need the symbol, whether in MS Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, and press Ctrl + V to paste.

This is how you may copy and paste the left-right arrow sign using the character map on Windows.
