  • Hi!

    This might seem like it has nothing to do with the problem, but turn off "sticky keys". It's known to cause problems with this.

  • Hi Kathy2017,

    According to our test, it is available to type copyright symbol with ALT+0169 on numpad.
    If you use laptop, try to type it using on-screen keyboard to troubleshoot whether the issue is caused by the keyboard.
    Or you can type “00A9” and then press Alt+X, the © symbol will replace 00A9.

    Best regards,
