How do you make a heart in email?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To make a heart symbol in an email, you can use a keyboard shortcut. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Press and hold the “Alt” button on your keyboard. The “Alt” button is typically located on either side of the spacebar.

2. While holding the “Alt” button, press the number “3” on the right-side number pad of your keyboard. Make sure to use the number pad on the right side, not the number keys above the letters.

3. Release the “Alt” button. The heart symbol (♥) should appear immediately after you release the button.

If the heart symbol does not appear, it could be due to the “Num Lock” setting on your keyboard. The “Num Lock” key is usually located above the right-side number pad. Pressing it toggles the functionality of the number pad. Ensure that the “Num Lock” is turned on before attempting the keyboard shortcut again.

It’s worth noting that this method works on most Windows-based computers. However, it may not work on all devices or operating systems. If you’re using a different device or operating system, you can try searching for specific instructions related to your setup.

In addition to using the keyboard shortcut, some email clients and text editors provide the option to insert special characters or symbols directly. Look for an option like “Insert Symbol” or “Special Characters” in the toolbar or menu of your email client to explore alternative ways of inserting a heart symbol.

Remember to test the heart symbol before sending your email to ensure it appears correctly on the recipient’s device or email client.
