    Hey guys, I'm looking for the font or a way to type the windows logo.

    Like this one:
    [​IMG]


    On my mac, I can hold down Alt+Shift+K and it makes me a small apple character, like this:  (I don't know if windows can see it though).

    I'm looking for the windows logo character to use in my texts.

    Maybe there's a font or something...

    Cheers! :D

    I can't see the Apple character on XP. An easy way to do this is just to download a custom Dingbat/Webding font from DaFont or someplace. I'm almost certain there's tons of fonts that will get you what you need.

    Here you go: http://www.dafont.com/illustrate-it.font

    I don't think any Windows users can see that Apple logo, it shows up as a missing character logo. :p

    The font Theros123 posted is for both Windows and Mac, pretty much all the fonts on dafont.com are for both.
