How to Make a Check Mark in MS Word


Microsoft Word, also known as MS Word, is a word processing application produced by Microsoft. MS Word enables users to create text-based documents, including reports, essays and creative works. Office and academic environments commonly rely on MS Word for the majority of their word processing needs. When a user presses a key on the keyboard, the identical symbol appears on the screen. In some instances, though, a user might wish to insert a symbol that does not exist on the keyboard. One such symbol is the check mark. Inserting a check mark in MS Word requires little technical skill.

  • Move the prompt to the location where you wish to insert the check mark.

  • Click "Insert" on the main menu.

  • Select "Symbol."

  • Click on the font drop-down menu.

  • Scroll down and select "Wingdings."

  • Look at the last row. You will see a check mark. Click on it.

  • Click the "Insert" button.

Tips & Warnings

  • Change the attributes of the check mark the same way as you would alter any other text. Simply highlight the mark and select font size, color and other attributes from the formatting palette.
