1. Inserting a check mark on a slide by inserting bullets

If you want to insert a check mark at the beginning of one or more paragraphs on a PowerPoint slide, you can apply custom bullets using the Wingdings font (or a similar font).

To insert check marks as custom bullets to paragraphs in a text box or placeholder:

  1. Display the slide on which you want to insert check mark(s).
  2. Select the paragraph(s) in a text box or placeholder to which you want to add check marks (at the beginning of the paragraph).
  3. Click the Home tab in the Ribbon.
  4. In the Paragraph group, click the arrow beside the Bullets. A drop-down menu appears.
  5. Click Bullets and Numbering. A dialog box appears.
  6. Click Customize. A dialog box appears.
  7. Select Wingdings from the Font drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can select another font such as Wingdings 2 or Segoe UI Symbol.
  8. Scroll through the list of symbols until you find the check mark symbol you want to use and then click it.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Change the size and color of the bullet (check mark) if necessary.
  11. Click OK. The check marks will be added at the beginning of the paragraph(s).

The Bullets and Numbering dialog box (below) offers multiple options for changing bullets:

In the Bullets and Numbering dialog box, you can also select Picture and then navigate to a picture you want to use as a bullet and then double-click it.

You can also apply bullets in layouts in Slide Master View so that every slide using that layout would use custom bullets. Bullets can be added to level 1 paragraphs, level 2 and so on.

2. Inserting a check mark on a slide using Insert Symbol

If you want to add a check mark in a line of text, at the end of a line of text, in a cell in a table or in a shape, you can use Insert Symbol.

To insert a check mark using Insert Symbol in PowerPoint:

  1. Display the slide on which you want to insert a check mark.
  2. Position the cursor in the text box or placeholder where you want to insert a check mark. You can also click in a cell in a table or click a shape.
  3. Click the Insert tab in the Ribbon.
  4. In the Symbols group, click Symbol. A dialog box appears.
  5. Select Wingdings from the Font drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can select another font such as Wingdings 2 or Segoe UI Symbol.
  6. Scroll through the list of symbols until you find the check mark symbol you want to use and then click it.
  7. Click Insert.
  8. Click Close.

Once the check mark has been inserted, you can change its size or color using the Home tab in the Ribbon or by right-clicking and selecting formatting options from the mini-toolbar.

In the example below, Wingdings is selected in the Symbol dialog box (this is the same dialog box that appears when you customize bullets):

3. Inserting a check mark using an Alt keyboard shortcut

You can press the Alt key in combination with numbers on the numeric keypad to insert a check mark symbol.

To insert a check mark symbol on a PowerPoint slide using Alt:

  1. Display the slide on which you want to insert a check mark.
  2. Position the cursor in a text box, placeholder, table cell or shape where you want to insert a check mark symbol.
  3. Press Alt + 0252 or Alt + 0254 on the numeric keypad. If the sequence doesn’t work, press NumLock on the numeric keypad. PowerPoint will insert a different character.
  4. Select the character, click the Home tab in the Ribbon and select Wingdings from the Font drop-down menu.

4. Inserting a check mark using icons

Starting in PowerPoint 2016, you can insert icons on your PowerPoint slides. These icons include check marks. Icons are inserted as graphics which can be moved around on the slide. They are not inserted inline within text.

To insert a check mark icon (in 2016 and later versions):

  1. Display the slide on which you want to insert a check mark.
  2. Click the Insert tab in the Ribbon.
  3. In the Illustrations group, click Icons. A dialog box appears.
  4. In the Search box, type check mark. The dialog box will display suggested icons.
  5. Click the check mark you want to use.
  6. Click Insert.
  7. Click Close.

The Insert Icon dialog box displays a gallery of icons as follows (screenshot from 365):

After inserting an icon, you can move it and apply formatting to it. These icons are provided by Microsoft and are available as part of Stock Images if you have a 365 subscription.

Insert a Check Mark or Tick Mark in PowerPoint for Windows

Do you want to insert a check mark, which is also called a tick mark or a tally mark, in your PowerPoint slides? Very often, this symbol indicates a task that’s done, an answer that’s correct, or something that’s checked or verified. You may want to add this check or tick symbol as part of your regular text in text placeholders and boxes, shapes, tables, and even charts. Fortunately, it is very easy to complete this task in most versions of PowerPoint for Windows. There may be slight differences, depending upon whether you are using a newer or older version of PowerPoint, but even then, the process is very similar. Using one of these options, you will be able to add a check mark or tick mark in PowerPoint.

We will look at four ways to add a check mark in PowerPoint:

  1. Use an Alt key combination
  2. Use the Symbol dialog box
  3. Use the Character Map
  4. Create an AutoCorrect entry

1. Use an Alt key combination

It's no longer easy to add a check mark using an Alt key combination in PowerPoint, because when you press the Alt key, and type numbers, this activates commands on the Quick Access Toolbar. Fortunately, you can still use Notepad with the Alt key trick, as long as you have a separate number pad on your keyboard:

  1. Launch Notepad, as shown in Figure 1, below. You'll notice that we clicked once within Notepad to establish an insertion point.
  2. Place your insertion point in Notepad
    Figure 1:Click once within Notepad
  3. Now, hold the Alt key while you type 0252 on the number pad of your keyboard to insert an ü (u umlaut) character, as shown in Figure 2, below. You'll have to type the numbers in quick succession while holding the Alt key.
  4. Use Notepad to type in the ü (u umlaut) character
    Figure 2:Add an ü (u umlaut) character in Notepad
  5. No Number Pad?

  6. If you are using a laptop computer that does not have a number pad, then you can usually press the Num Lock key and use alternate characters printed on the keyboard, usually in another color. You can also use Windows' On-Screen Keyboard app.
  7. Now, copy this character and paste into your PowerPoint slide, as shown in Figure 3, below.
  8. Paste the u umlaut character in PowerPoint
    Figure 3:Copy from Notepad and paste the u umlaut character in PowerPoint
  9. Select this u umlaut character in PowerPoint, and change the font to Wingdings, as shown in Figure 4, below. You will notice that the u umlaut character changed to a check mark (tick mark) symbol.
  10. Change the font to Wingdings
    Figure 4:With the u umlaut character selected, change the font to Wingdings
  11. Wingdings, Wingdings 2, and Dingbats

  12. Are you wondering why an alphabetical character that you typed or pasted changed into a symbol? That's because we changed the font for this text to Wingdings, a font that comprises dingbat characters for every keystroke you type!
  13. Wingdings has been part of Microsoft Windows since Windows 3.1. After the success of Wingdings, Microsoft created Wingdings 2 and Wingdings 3 too. Do note though that to add this checkmark or tally symbol, you must use Wingdings, and not Wingdings 2 or Wingdings 3.

2. Use the Symbol dialog box

To access the check mark character from the Symbol dialog box, follow these steps:

  1. In PowerPoint, click within any text container object to place your insertion point, as shown in Figure 5, below.
  2. Place your insertion point
    Figure 5:Place your insertion point
  3. Now access the Insert tab of the Ribbon, and click the Symbol button, as shown in Figure 6, below.
  4. Click the Symbol button
    Figure 6:Click the Symbol button
  5. This brings up the Symbol dialog box, that you can see in Figure 7, below.
  6. The Symbol dialog box
    Figure 7:The Symbol dialog box
  7. Make sure you change the font to Wingdings in the Font dropdown list, highlighted in green in Figure 7, above. Scroll down the preview area to find the check mark character, shown highlighted in red within Figure 7, above. You then press the Insert key, highlighted in blue to place your check mark in PowerPoint.
  8. Quickly Add Symbols

  9. Double-click any character to quickly add it to your insertion point in PowerPoint. You can double-click characters in quick succession, one after the other, to add multiple characters to your insertion point on the slide.

3. Use the Character Map

Character Map is not an option within PowerPoint, but a small program that is built-in within Microsoft Windows. To bring up Character Map, you can bring up the Run dialog box from the Windows Start menu, as shown in Figure 8, below.

Bring up Character Map from the Run dialog box
Figure 8:Bring up Character Map from the Run dialog box

Next type in "charmap" without the quotes, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 8. Now click the OK button.

This will bring up the Character Map program, as can be seen in Figure 9, below.

Character Map
Figure 9:Character Map

Now follow these steps:

  1. Click the Font dropdown list, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 9, above. Choose the Wingdings font.
  2. Now, locate the check mark symbol, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 10, below.
  3. Advanced view in Character Map
    Figure 10:Advanced view in Character Map
  4. Now, click the Select button, highlighted in blue within Figure 10, above.
  5. Now the Copy button is available, as seen highlighted in red within Figure 11, below. You can click the Copy button, and navigate to PowerPoint or any other open application, and paste it there.
  6. Copy from the Character Map
    Figure 11:Copy from the Character Map
  7. When you paste, you may not see the check mark (tick mark) as expected. You may see the ü umlaut character in PowerPoint. To see the check mark (tick mark), please select the ü umlaut character, and change the font to Wingdings.

Sometimes, you may find that the font size of your pasted check mark character in PowerPoint may be different that the nearby text. In that case, make sure you match the font size of the text pasted.


4. Create an AutoCorrect entry

Finally, you can create an AutoCorrect entry that lets you add a check mark quickly, with a shortcut. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click the File button to bring up Backstage view. Then click the Options link to bring up the PowerPoint Options dialog box that you see in Figure 12.
  2. PowerPoint Options
    Figure 12:PowerPoint Options
  3. Select the Proofing tab in the sidebar and click the AutoCorrect Options button, as highlighted in red within Figure 10, above.
  4. This will bring up the AutoCorrect dialog box, as shown in Figure 13, below. Select the AutoCorrect tab, and type in your shortcut in the Replace box, highlighted in red within Figure 13. We typed _/, that is an underscore followed by a slash.
  5. AutoCorrect dialog box
    Figure 13:AutoCorrect dialog box
  6. In the With box, we typed in an u umlaut. You can use any technique, or just copy this character (ü). Paste this character within the With box, highlighted in blue in Figure 13. Next, click the OK button, highlighted in green.
  7. This will bring you back to the PowerPoint Options dialog box. Click the OK button.

Now, whenever you type _/, PowerPoint will replace these characters with an u umlaut. In case you don't want the _/ characters to be replaced with an u umlaut, press Ctrl + Z to undo. To see the check mark (tick mark) rather than the u umlaut, change the font to Wingdings. Also, do note that any AutoCorrect entry you create will work in all Microsoft applications, such as Word, Excel, Outlook, etc.

Certain objects have a lot of utility in slideshow presentations, so you may find yourself using them on multiple occasions. But you may be wondering how to add a check mark in Powerpoint if it would be a beneficial symbol to include on one of your slides.

A check mark can be a useful symbol to include in a number of different document types, including slideshows that you create in Microsoft Powerpoint. But it can be difficult to add such a symbol to one of your slides because it can be tough to find.

Our guide below is going to show you where to locate the check mark symbol in Powerpoint so that you can add it to a text box in one of your slides. You can then customize that check mark in the same ways that you would customize other text that you have added.

How to Add a Check Mark in Powerpoint for Office 365

  1. Open your presentation.
  2. Choose the slide for the checkmark.
  3. Select Insert.
  4. Click inside a text box or create a new text box.
  5. Select the Symbol button.
  6. Click Font, then choose Wingdings.
  7. Select the check mark at the bottom of the list, then click Insert.

Our guide continues below with additional information on adding checkmarks in Powerpoint, including pictures for these steps.

How to Insert a Check Mark Symbol in Powerpoint (Guide with Pictures)

The steps in this tutorial were performed in Microsoft Powerpoint for Office 365, but will work in most other recent versions of Powerpoint as well.

Step 1: Open your slideshow in Powerpoint.

Step 2: Select the slide where you wish to add the check mark from the column of slides at the left side of the window.

select a slide

Step 3: Choose the Insert tab at the top of the window.

Step 4: Click inside an existing text box where you wish to add the check mark, or click the Text Box button in the ribbon to add a new text box, then click inside of it.

click inside the text box where you want the check mark

Step 5: Select the Symbol button in the Symbols section of the ribbon.

click the Symbol button

Step 6: Click the Font dropdown menu, then scroll down and choose the Wingdings option.

select the Font dropdown menu, then click Wingdings

Step 7: Scroll to the bottom of the list of symbols, select the check mark, then click the Insert button.

Alternate Option for Adding Check Marks in Powerpoint (Older Powerpoint Versions)

There is also a check mark that can be added to one of your slides which is located on the Interface tab of the Icons menu. You can add this with the following steps:

  1. Click the Insert tab.
  2. Select the Icons button in the Illustrations section of the ribbon.
  3. Choose the Interface tab at the left side of the window.
  4. Click the check mark, then click Insert at the bottom of the window.

This method works in older versions of Powerpoint. If you have a newer version of Powerpoint then the Icons button will open a window where you can browse or search for check mark symbols instead.

Are you working on a slideshow that will be playing on a continuous loop somewhere? Find out where to find the setting in Powerpoint that enables it to loop endlessly.

More Information on How to Insert Check Mark in Powerpoint

Either of the methods outlined above provide you with a way to add a check mark to a Powerpoint slide. One other option that you could consider is to go to the Insert tab, then click the Icons button in the Illustrations group in the ribbon. You can then type the word “check” into the search field at the top of the window, select a check mark, then click Insert.

Adding a check mark with the above method will place the check mark in the slide as an image, which you can move, rotate, or adjust as needed.

While we discussed how to insert a check mark in Powerpoint using the Symbol dialog box, you can find a number of other helpful symbols besides the check mark character. For example, the Wingdings font has a bunch of other tiny pictures that could be useful, as well as a variety of arrows that you might want to insert to point out an important point.

One of the benefits of using the Symbol dialog box to add check marks is that you can use formatting options that you are probably already familiar with, such as font size and font color. When you insert a check mark symbol from the Icons menu you can also adjust its appearance, but those adjustments need to be from the Graphics Format tab, which becomes visible after you click the check mark. Then you can use options like Graphics Fill to change the color of your check marks, or you could use Graphics Outline to give the check mark character a border.

One final method that you can use to add check marks involves an application called the Character Map. If you click the search button in your taskbar and type “character map” into the search field it will open a window that looks very similar to the one that opened when you click the Symbol button in the ribbon. You can then follow the same steps from our guide above by choosing the Wingdings font and browsing to the desired checkmark symbol.

How to Insert a Check Mark Symbol in PowerPoint

You can easily insert a special character, fraction, or other symbol in your PowerPoint presentations and Excel workbooks.

The most important thing to understand when inserting symbols, fractions, special characters, or international characters is that the font you use is critical. Not all fonts have the same characters in them. For example, the Elephant font has no fraction characters in it, while Verdana does. As a result it's important to use the right font to find the symbol or character you want.

These marks are static symbols. If you're looking for an interactive check box that you can click on to check or uncheck, see: Add a check box or option button (Excel).

Symbol such as currency (¥), music (♫), or check marks (✔)

  1. Place your cursor in the file at the spot where you want to insert the symbol.

  2. Go to Insert > Symbol.

    Symbol command on the Insert tab
  3. Pick a symbol, or choose More Symbols.

  4. Scroll up or down to find the symbol you want to insert.

    Different font sets often have different symbols in them and the most commonly used symbols are in the Segoe UI Symbol font set. Use the Font selector above the symbol list to pick the font you want to browse through.

  5. When you find the symbol you want, double-click it. The symbol will be inserted in your file.

  6. Select Close.

Tip: If you want to make your symbol larger or smaller, select it and use the Font Size setting.

If you're going to insert the same symbol often, consider setting up AutoCorrect to insert it for you. You can find more info about that here: Insert a check mark or other symbol using AutoCorrect.

  1. Click or tap where you want to insert the special character.

  2. Go to Insert > Symbol > More Symbols.

  3. Go to Special Characters.

    On the "Special Characters" tab, click the "Nonbreaking Space" row to highlight it, and then click "Insert."
  4. Double-click the character that you want to insert.

    Tip: Many of the special characters have shortcut keys associated with them. If you want to insert that special character again in the future, just press the shortcut key. ALT+CTRL+C inserts the Copyright symbol (©), for example.

  5. Select Close.

Some fractions (1/4, 1/2, and 3/4) automatically switch to a fraction character (¼, ½, ¾) when you type them. But others do not (1/3, 2/3, 1/5, etc.) so if you want to insert those as symbols you'll need to use the insert symbol process.

  1. Click or tap where you want to insert the fraction.

  2. Go to Insert > Symbol > More Symbols.

  3. In the Subset dropdown, choose Number Forms.

    Select Number Forms in the Subset dialog to show fractions and other math symbols

    Note: Not all fonts have a number forms subset. If you don't see the number forms subset available for your font you will have to use a different font, such as Calibri, to insert the fraction character.

  4. Double-click the fraction that you want to insert.

  5. Select Close.

Only a handful of common fractions have a symbol that you can substitute. For more unusual fractions, such as 8/9, you can approximate the symbol by setting the numerator as superscript and the denominator as subscript. For more information see Insert subscript or superscript text.

If you plan to type in other languages often you should consider switching your keyboard layout to that language. You can find more information about that at Enable or change a keyboard layout language.

For one-off characters there are almost always keyboard shortcuts in Office to do that. For example:

  • CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+? inserts a ¿

  • CTRL+SHIFT+~ followed immediately by "a" will insert ã.

  • CTRL+SHIFT+: followed immediately by "u" will insert ü.

For the complete guide to using the keyboard to insert international characters see: Keyboard shortcuts for international characters.

You can also use the character code of the symbol as a keyboard shortcut. Symbols and special characters are either inserted using ASCII or Unicode codes. You can tell which is which when you look up the code for the character.

  1. Go to Insert >Symbol > More Symbols.

  2. Scroll up or down the list to find the symbol you want; note that you might have to change the font or the subset to locate it.

    Tip: The Segoe UI Symbol font has a very large collection of Unicode symbols to choose from.

  3. Towards the bottom right you'll see boxes for Character code and a from:. The character code is what you'll enter to insert this symbol from the keyboard and the from: tells you what kind of character it is. If from: says "Unicode (hex)" it's a Unicode character. If from: says "Symbol (Decimal)" then it's an ASCII character.

The from field tells you that this is a Unicode symbol

How to Insert a Tick Symbol in PowerPoint

Tick symbols as well as other common symbols are widely used in any PowerPoint presentation. You can use tick symbols to describe a Yes situation but also in bullet points. If you need to insert a tick symbol in a PowerPoint presentation there are different ways to achieve that.

The easiest way to insert a tick symbol is using the Insert -> Symbol feature. This feature allows you to insert any symbol from the Wingdings fonts. You can use the default Wingdings fonts available in Windows and Mac, but also install your own fonts.

The advantage of inserting a symbol using this approach is that you don’t need to save an image information for the tick, which may reduce the overall size.

How to Insert a Tick Symbol in PowerPoint?

First, go to Insert -> Symbol.

Now, scroll down until finding the tick symbol. You will notice that there are many variants available. For example, you can insert the squared tick symbol or a simple check mark.

You can use the check marks and tick symbols for example to describe a task list in a slide and then mark those tasks that were completed in a project plan, or you can also use the tick symbols to describe the pros and cons of a given business situation.

You can use this approach to Insert Tick Symbol in Excel, Word and PowerPoint. You can learn more about how to insert a checkmark symbol in PowerPoint in this alternative article that we have created covering the checkmark icon. Another approach to insert a tick symbol in PowerPoint is by using Emojis. You can copy and paste emojis into PowerPoint.

Another Way to Insert Check Marks in PowerPoint or Tick Symbols using Cliparts

In some other situations, you may be interested to insert moving animations, animated moving pictures and other cliparts in the slide design even if these are static. While this is not the recommended way to use cliparts, it may be useful in some situations.

Did you know? A tick was also called checkmark or check which indicates affirmation after verification or affirmation. It has originated back to the ancient Romans: When keeping checklists, they marked the items that they had checked with a V, standing for the Latin word veritas which means “truth”.

An X or a cross out mark denotes elimination, prohibition or erasure. It denotes the opposite of a tick or check.

Alternatively you can create your own shapes by tracing the shape in PowerPoint or using Adobe Illustrator, or you can use pre-designed tick clipart graphics. You can learn more how to insert cliparts in PowerPoint here.
