In this tutorial, we will learn how to do the trademark symbol on a Mac. The trademark symbol (™) is a commonly used symbol to indicate that a particular word, phrase, or logo is a registered trademark.

Method 1: Using Keyboard Shortcuts

If you frequently use the trademark symbol, it can be quite handy to know the keyboard shortcut for it. Here’s how you can easily insert the trademark symbol in any text field:

  1. Place your cursor at the location where you want to insert the trademark symbol.

  2. Press and hold the Option key on your keyboard.

  3. While holding the Option key, press the letter R.

  4. Release both keys simultaneously.

You should now see the trademark symbol (™) inserted at the cursor position.

Method 2: Using Character Viewer

If you don’t want to remember keyboard shortcuts or if your keyboard doesn’t have a dedicated Option key, you can also use the Character Viewer to insert special characters like the trademark symbol:

  1. Click on the Edit option in the menu bar at the top of your screen.

  2. Select Emoji & Symbols.

  3. A window will appear with various symbols and characters. In the search bar at the top right corner of this window, type “trademark”.

  4. A list of available trademark symbols will be displayed. Click on the desired symbol to insert it at the cursor position.

Additional Tips

If you find yourself using the trademark symbol frequently, consider creating a keyboard shortcut for it. You can do this by going to System Preferences > Keyboard > Text.

In the “Replace” column, enter a short code like “tm”, and in the “With” column, paste the trademark symbol. From now on, whenever you type “tm” followed by a space or punctuation, it will be automatically replaced with the trademark symbol.

Remember that the keyboard shortcuts and Character Viewer method mentioned above are specific to Mac. If you are using a different operating system, such as Windows or Linux, the methods may vary.

Now that you know how to do the trademark symbol on a Mac, you can easily add it to your text whenever needed. Whether you’re writing legal documents, marketing materials, or simply want to show ownership of your brand, using the trademark symbol correctly adds a professional touch.
