Microsoft's Word 2007 software gives you the ability to add more than just letters and numbers to your document. You can also add pictures, tables and symbols to create unique, content-rich documents. Arrows, fractions, monetary signs, scientific symbols and international characters are a few of the examples Microsoft mentions on its website as available in Word 2007. These symbols come as a built-in font that you can add through the "Symbols" group.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Microsoft Word.

  2. 2

    Click the "Insert" tab. Find the "Symbols" group.

  3. 3

    Click the "Symbol" icon and select "More Symbols" from the drop-down list. This opens the "Symbols" window.

  4. 4

    Click the drop-down arrow in the "Subset" box. Scroll down the list and click "Arrows."

  5. 5

    Click on an arrow in the box of available symbols.

  6. 6

    Click "Insert," then "Close."

Tips and warnings

  • Microsoft suggests using the Times New Roman or Arial, which they call expanded fonts, to gain access to the "Subset" option in the "Symbols" window.
