How to insert check mark symbols in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2019-01-03

For example you want to make a questionnaire in Excel, and you need to insert some check mark symbols into it. How to quickly find out the check mark symbols and insert? You can follow below methods:

Insert check mark symbols by Symbol feature

Save inserted check mark symbols as AutoText entries for reusing with only one click

Easily insert multiple checkboxes or option buttons at once in Excel

Normally we can only insert one checkbox or option button in a cell at a time with tedious steps in Excel. But Kutools for Excel's Batch Insert Check Boxes utility and Batch Insert Option Buttons utility can help Excel users quickly insert multiple checkboxes or option buttons into all selected cells.

Normally, we can apply the Symbol feature to insert check mark symbols into cells easily.

1. Select the cells you will insert the check mark symbols, and click Insert > Symbol.

2. In the opening Symbol dialog box, please:

(1) Select Wingdings from the Font drop down list;

(2) Drag the vertical scroll bar down until you view the check mark symbols, and select the check mark symbol you will insert. See screenshot:

3. Click the Insert button.

Note: With the Symbol feature, you can insert multiple symbols into one cell, but can’t insert multiple symbols into multiple cells at a time.
