How to Make a Skull on a Keyboard in Wingdings

Creating a skull symbol using the keyboard and the Wingdings font in a program like Microsoft Word or a similar text editor is quite straightforward. Wingdings is a typeface that includes a variety of symbols. Here’s how you can create a skull symbol:

  1. Open Your Text Editor:
    • Open a program where you can type text, like Microsoft Word, Notepad, or an email editor.
  2. Type the Character:
    • With your text editor open, type the capital letter “N. This is the character that corresponds to the skull symbol in the Wingdings font.
  3. Change the Font to Wingdings:
    • Highlight the letter “N” you just typed.
    • Change the font of this character to Wingdings. You can usually do this by going to the font selection drop-down menu in your text editor and selecting “Wingdings” from the list.
  4. Adjust Size (Optional):
    • If you want the skull symbol to be larger or smaller, adjust the font size as you would with any regular text.
  5. Alternative Method:
  6. Considerations:
    • Remember that the Wingdings font needs to be supported and installed on any system where you want the skull symbol to appear correctly. If you send a document with this symbol to someone else, and they don’t have Wingdings installed, they won’t see the skull symbol.
    • The skull symbol will only appear correctly in the Wingdings font. If the font is changed back to a regular font like Arial or Times New Roman, it will revert to being the letter “N”.

Using Wingdings or other symbol fonts is a fun way to add unique characters and symbols to your documents that aren’t available on a standard keyboard.
