The Microsoft Word interface provides many tools for creating a document that contains various objects, including tables, images and symbols. Perhaps your document contains weather references that would benefit from the use of the temperature or degree symbol. Use Word options to add this symbol to your document, clearly representing the temperature values to your readers.
Launch Microsoft Word. Click the "Office" button from the top and choose "Open." Select the file you want to modify from the resulting browsing window. Navigate to the location in your document where you want to insert the degree sign.
Select "Insert" from the top menu. Click the "Symbol" drop-down menu from the Symbols panel found on the right side of the tab. Click "More Symbols." Locate the degree sign and click it, or type "00B0" into the Character Code field to highlight it automatically.
Click the "Insert" button. The degree sign is inserted into your document. The symbol is also added to the "Symbol" drop-down menu for easy future access.
