Registered Trademark symbol (®) (or registered sign) is an often used symbol in computers. This symbol indicated that the associated name or logo has been duly registered with the authorities and any attempt to misuse the name or logo could be punished by law. In this tutorial, we will learn what is registered trademark symbol and how to type it in MS Word, other computer applications and in web pages.

What is Registered Trademark Symbol?

The registered trademark symbol composed of a circled capital letter R. This symbol is usually placed on the right hand side of the registered name or logo. This symbol is also commonly super-scripted or raised.

Trademark is a name or logo that is used to uniquely identify a product or service. Trademark status of a name or logo is indicated with a trademark symbol (™). But to be precise, in some countries, for example USA, trademark symbol is used only when goods are being referred to. For services, a Service Mark (℠) symbol, is used. Copyright symbol has a completely different use.

Intel is the registered trademark of Intel Corporation. In contrast, the word "inside" and "core" are just trademarks.

Trademark does not need to be necessarily registered. But if you decide to officially register it with the authorities, you can use the registered symbol instead of the trademark symbol.

Method 1: Use AutoCorrect
This is the easiest way to type the proper ® symbol in MS Word is to use AutoCorrect feature. MS Word comes pre-configured to replace (rm) with ®. So, just type (rm) and press space; the registered trademark symbol will appear.

Press left Alt key and then type 0174 on numeric pad (NumPad) of your keyboard. Now release the Alt key to get the symbol. You must type 0174 on numeric pad and not on the regular number keys that run across the keyboard.

Alt+x is a key combination in MS Word to convert a Unicode into the associated symbol. Type 00AE and then press Alt + x keys. The code 00AE will be replaced by registered trademark symbol.
