**What are the Keyboard Symbol Names?**

Do you know that a computer has more keyboard symbols than just letters and numbers? There are 49 popular keyboard symbols and on this page, I will show you the names and locations of each keyboard symbol and special characters beyond the letters (A-Z) and numbers (0-9).

For those who are here to copy and paste these keyboard symbols, I have made the list available in a table format. You can always come back to copy any of the symbols instead of trying to find the keyboard symbols shortcuts which might take time. Moreover, readers with faulty keyboards will find this page very useful.
