How to Get the Tick Sign in Word
Add a tick sign, or checkmark, to your Word document. (OK-check image by Brett Bouwer from Fotolia.com)

Microsoft Word might have "word" in its name, but the software doesn't restrict users to only typing text. Create a variety of symbols in Word, including tick signs or checkmarks. Use them to illustrate your to-do lists, guide people filling out surveys or serve as decoration in a document. With a few clicks in Word, you're able to create a tick sign and "check" it off your list.

    Click the "Insert" tab at the top of the screen. Click the "Symbol" button on the right side of the ribbon/toolbar below the tab. The "Symbol" window opens.
