ALT Codes - Alt Codes for Greek Letters

Welcome to Useful Shortcuts, THE Alt Code resource!

If you are already familiar with using alt codes, simply select the alt code category you need from the table below.

If you need help using alt codes find and note down the alt code you need then visit our instructions for using alt codes page.

List of Alt Codes for entering Greek Letters

ALT Codes for Greek Letters
Alt Code Symbol Description
Alt 224 α Alpha
Alt 225 ß Beta
Alt 226 Γ Gamma
Alt 235 δ Delta
Alt 238 ε Epsilon
Alt 233 Θ Theta
Alt 227 π Pi
Alt 230 µ Mu
Alt 228 Σ Uppercase Sigma
Alt 229 σ Lowercase sigma
Alt 231 τ Tau
Alt 232 Φ Uppercase Phi
Alt 237 φ Lowercase Phi
Alt 234 Ω Omega



Delta is on this list...

Capital Delta is Alt+30 (▲).

they have lowercase delta on there "δ"

It sure is. It's δ. And it's in the list.

Delta's in the list. I was wondering about getting capital delta - and for some reason when I typed alt-235 and then space, the lower-case delta changed into a capital one.

Very helpful indeed. I love Greek.

hahaha this is awesome

i visited ur site for the first n i found it very beautiful n interesting,u presented ur blog very simple .

Some of the Greek alt codes produce the wrong symbol. Eg,
alt 227 produces Ò
alt 237 produces Ý
alt 234 produces Û

Some other useful codes:
Alt + 1001 = Θ
Alt + 1002 = Ω
Alt + 1003 = δ
Alt + 1004 = ∞
Alt + 1005 = φ
Alt + 1006 = ε
Alt + 1007 = ∩
Alt + 1008 = ↑
Alt + 1009 = ↓
Alt + 1010 = ≥

These are dependent on your SYSTEM LOCALE. Change your system locale to the US for these to work.

Fantastic post and this was the great article i hope that this website continue to post such thing that will provide the solution to needy person.

Depends on Computer? imo..

you using MacOs? this is for windows

This is awesome! I used torrents for years now and I found this post very much usual than I thought. Thanks for sharing.

I have the exact same problem, as I get those exact same results as you. It seems to be related to the code page installed by windows. In other words, all these code page tricks only work on a specific code page, which is not specified here and that apparently cannot be easily changed.

if its wrong just copy and paste ☻

Just great!=)

The reason for the "wrong symbol" is the windows platform you are using (possibly Windows 7)

The codes I listed work with Windows XP.

I, myself, cannot find the codes for Windows 7. I have no problem with the regular Greek characters, but if I want to print a special character, say the letter omega with an iota subscript (ῳ) I don't know how to do it using Windows 7. With Windows XP, I simply used Alt 8179.

Hi there.

It looks like you've left out Lamda.

I have never ever come across such a wonderful piece of information. Today I am proud to say that I have finally gain knowledge on this topic.

Why haven't you inluded all upper & lowercase greek characters? You've got lower case epsilon but upper case gamma.

Tony, these characters are defined in your operating system and font set, not by the folks at Useful Shortcuts.

I agree with the old geek, so sorry greek mathematicians. They are all geniuses and i mean all of them!

The greek letter LAMDA (lower & Upper case) is missing in the given list ... How to type them ???
Thanks for the appropiate answer.

There should be 48 Alt equivalents, for both the lower case and upper case 24 Greek characters. Can you send the missing ones to me ?

Lowercase delta is perhaps the most surprising character missing here.

Lowercase delta has a very basic use in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and virtually every branch of science.

227 = π
0227 = ã
002277 = å

Pi only appears as n.. any other code?

i visited ur site for the first n i found it very beautiful n interesting,u presented ur blog very simple .

lower case delta δ is ALT-235 but many of the greek letters do not have an ALT code. I have looked often for the upper case delta, but alas we have to go to the symbol font to get it.

OneNote apparently doesn't work with all of these alt codes.
In Microsoft OneNote (2010), when you go to the insert symbol window, it shows you a base 16 number in a text box labeled Character Code. To find the oneNote alt code for a symbol, convert the base 16 number to base 10 (first digit * 16^3 + second digit * 16^2 + third digit * 16 + last digit where A=10, B=11, C=12, and so on), and that's your alt code. Thus pi with character code 03C0 has an alt code of 0 * 16^3 + 3 * 16^2 + 11 (C) * 16 + 0 which equals 960 when plugged into a calculator. Thus pi's alt code is 960 in oneNote (2010).

Doesn't work for me :-(

I agree with the old geek, so sorry greek mathematicians. They are all geniuses and i mean all of them!

i dont get it because 227 makes Ò for me :(

Here are the lower case letters:
945 α alpha
946 β beta
947 γ gamma
948 δ delta
949 ε epsilon
950 ζ zeta
951 η eta
952 θ theta
953 ι iota
954 κ kappa
955 λ lamda
956 μ mu
957 ν nu
958 ξ xi
959 ο omicron
960 π pi
961 ρ rho
962 ς sigma (end of word)
963 σ sigma (elsewhere)
964 τ tau
965 υ upsilon
966 φ phi
967 χ chi
968 ψ psi
969 ω omega

Mathematics = fascinating.

To locate ALT codes on a Windows Vista system try:

On Windows Keyboards hold down the Windows key (located between Ctrl and Alt keys) and push the 'R' to initiate a Run dialog window. Enter 'charmap' (without the quotes)

Alternatively you can enter:

Start|All Programs|Accessories|System Tools|Character Map

It all gets you to the same place.
Select the font that you are using then
Select the character you desire. You can copy and paste the character or you can enter the alt code:

Where U+ means hold down the Alt key while you enter the 3 or 4 digit number nnnn

Have fun!!!

Really usefull.
But how do you do for the codes with a letter ?

Great article, love the quality content you provide!

Thanks for sharing Interesting post. Thanks for taking this opportunity to discuss this, I appreciate with this and I like learning about this subject. If possible, as you gain information, please update this blog with more information. I have found it really useful.

Good web page along with delighted mail messages. I love this. Thanks get better at

lambda cannot be typed in the internet and notepad
its just ALT 955
if you type it on in internet it becomes ╗ or »
for word just type 3BB and then ALT+X

I have noticed that some of the codes change according to the font that is being used. And, yes, some symbols simply are not available with some fonts. That is unfortunate. You might search the character map for the specific font about which you are speaking to see if a different ALT code is assigned to your symbol.

What I'm looking for is the codes for Windows 7 in order to get characters such as this:

ἀ ἁ ἐ ἑ ἰ ἱ ὀ ὁ ᾳ ᾀ ᾁ

I have them for Windows XP, but do they exist for Windows 7?

Α913 ΒΓΔΕΖΗΘΙΚΛΜΝΞΟΠΡ΢ΣΤΥΦΧΨΩ937 945αβγδεζηθικλμνξοπρςστυφχψω969

I guess there are people here who use Greek letters fairly often, and I wondered if there was any place where I could get a complete list of Alt codes of four digits for the Greek letters. Specifically the need for the lowercase "n" (ie, which looks like a "v") and the same letter, except with a bar over it, for symbols of neutrinos and antineutrinos respectively.

If you could point me in the right direction (or simply tell me Alt codes), that would be great!

PS I have a QWERTY keyboard, if that makes a difference.

Your views are certainly interesting and they give me much to think about.Thank you for this post because it gave me so much great information.
