ASCII Code Keyboard Shortcut

Just stumbled across this great keyboard shortcut. If you want to insert a character by it’s ASCII code or just want to instantly check which character is stored under an ASCII code then all you need to do is hold down the ALT key, type the ASCII code on the numeric keypad, let go of the ALT key and the character will appear! For example hold down the ALT key, type 88, let go of the ALT key and ‘X’ will appear.

Just make sure that the NUM LOCK is off…
