How to Type Symbols using ALT Key

This is what I  used to do when I was using DOS as my operating system many years ago. When my friends don't know what to do about it. I showed them off that I could type some special characters which were not seen on keyboard.

Well, these symbols can be typed by using ALT key combined with Numeric pad on the right side of the keyboard. Press and hold the ALT key and then type the number representing the symbol. During DOS systems, the characters are from 0-255 (256  characters), but now, we don't type three number series, but mostly four character series. For example, you type ALT + 0169 (on numeric keypad), to get Copyright character like this "©".
