How To Insert Micro Sign Or Mu Symbol In Word

The letter is widely used in a variety of scientific fields. In statistics, a symbol designates a population means, in physics, coefficient of friction or magnetic permeability, and in measurement, micron or micrometer. Any Latin or Greek letter can be rapidly inserted into a Word document in a number of ways. Some of the most helpful approaches for micro sign or mu letters were proposed in this tip.
There are several ways to put the micro sign or mu letter (also known as the mew symbol) in a Word document:

I.  Using The Symbol Font

This method comes in handy when you just need to insert symbols once in a while, and it only works with Latin or Greek characters.

You can switch to the Symbol font and utilize the matching Latin letters to insert Greek characters at any moment when typing in a Word document:

  1. To change your current font to the Symbol font, press Ctrl+Shift+Q.
  2. Use symbols as if they were regular font (e.g., in Symbol font, keyboard button “a” equals Greek letter “”, keyboard button “b” equals Greek letter “”,…, “l” -> “”, “m” -> “”,…, “w” -> “”, etc.):


II.  Using The Equation:

If you don’t care about the format or compatibility with older versions of Microsoft Office (a suggested strategy for physical science and mathematics, which require a lot of arithmetic in the text with uniform fonts for all equations and symbols), this method is ideal:

  1. To insert the equitation block, press Alt+= in the paragraph where you wish to enter the symbol:
  2. You can type +Name of the letter: in the equitation block to input any letter you need without any further effort.

III.  Using AutoCorrect For Math:

You may not want to insert an equation every time you deal with multiple pages and need to paste a single special symbol. AutoCorrect is a useful function in Microsoft Word. Microsoft Word’s AutoCorrect settings offer two ways to swiftly insert any unusual character, such as a micro sign or a mu letter from the Greek alphabet, or even big chunks of text:

Using the AutoCorrect choices’ Replace text as you type function.

The Math AutoCorrect choices are as follows:

  2. On the Proofing tab of the Word Options dialogue box, click the AutoCorrect Options… button:
  3. Select the Use Math AutoCorrect rules outside of the math regions option in the AutoCorrect dialogue box’s Math AutoCorrect tab.

 IV.  Using A Shortcut Key:

Microsoft Word allows you to assign a shortcut key to the most frequently used features. As a result, you can give the micro sign a shortcut:

  1. Click the Symbol button in the Symbols group on the Insert tab:
  2. Select More Symbols from the drop-down menu…
  3. In the Symbol dialogue box, select
