The degree symbol indicates a measurement, such as a temperature or an angle. It appears as an empty circle that is positioned as a superscript. As a special character, there is not a specific key on the keyboard to press to get the degree symbol. Instead, you can insert the degree symbol using a menu item in Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click on the place in the PowerPoint slide where you want the degree symbol to appear.

  2. 2

    Click the “Insert” tab from the ribbon of tabs at the top of the PowerPoint window.

  3. 3

    Go to the “Text” menu beneath the ribbon and click the “Symbol” icon. The “Symbol” window opens.

  4. 4

    Locate the degree symbol from the options in the window. You may need to scroll through the options.

  5. 5

    Click on the degree symbol and press the “Insert” button. The degree symbol inserts in the document. Press the “Close” button to leave the “Symbol” window.
