As you may well know, if you are a person who uses your PC keyboard a lot to type either for work or anything else, the keyboard has the option of adding signs to its keys.
From the best most useful keyboard shortcuts to use in Excel to using the keyboard and mouse to play games on PlayStation 4 , everything can be done with these tools.
The problem is that in many cases, not all the signs that we need appear for every occasion. Or in other cases, the sign appears but when pressed it does not mark the sign we want, it ends up marking another.
Fortunately, operating systems such as Microsoft’s Windows are responsible for making shortcuts to solve these types of problems, giving the possibility of finding the sign we need by making some keyboard shortcuts.
This time we will teach you how to make the sign of greater than or equal to and less than or equal to on the PC keyboard or even on the mobile.
Different ways to sign on various operating systems
Below we will show you some ways to make the sign of greater or equal to and also the sign of less or equal than in different operating systems.
In the following way you can solve the problem of making the sign greater than or equal to and less than or equal to both on the PC and your mobile device.
On a PC:
- Write the sign greater than or equal to the sign: Alt + 242
- Type the sign less than or equal to the sign: Alt + 243
Characters that you cannot type on a PC keyboard are available through the Character Map application.
On a Mac:
- The sign greater than or equal to the sign is written: ⌥ +>
- Enter the sign less than or equal to the sign: ⌥ + <
Characters that you cannot type on the Mac keyboard are available through the Character Viewer.
On the iOS:
- There is no single keystroke that will do it, so you will have to create a Text Replacement shortcut that will do it for you.
- Go to: Settings, then General, now Keyboard and then Text Replacement …
- Create a new shortcut.
- Paste “≥” into the Phrase field. (You can copy it from here.)
- Type “> +” in the Shortcut field.
Whenever you need it, write the shortcut plus a space.
For the less or equal sign, for example:
- Create a new shortcut.
- Paste “≤” into the Phrase field.
- Enter “<=” in the Shortcut field.
For Android OS:
- The greater or equal sign is written: $ \ ge $ or $ geq $
- The lesser or equal sign is written: $ \ le $ or $ leq $
You should bear in mind that if you are on a laptop, you should probably make these shortcuts with the FN number keys. For example, press ALT + FN + the number of the sign you are looking for.
Guide insert greater or equal with Word
In Microsoft Word, you can effortlessly type some special symbols right from your keyboard.
One of them is the copyright symbol ©, which you can insert by entering the text (C) and letting AutoCorrect do the rest.
There are other symbols that are available as second keys on the keyboard. One is the # sign, which you can insert by pressing Shift + 3.
However, other symbols are not as easy to type on the keyboard. One is the symbol Greater than or equal to (≥).
To insert this and many other symbols, you need to explore Word’s symbol library or use the symbol’s Alt code, or the Greater than or equal to symbol shortcut.
