While making documents, one of the best ways to make it enjoyable is by including symbols. For instance, Tick symbols can signify a checklist of important points covered. Also, you can use them to illustrate a completed item on a to-do list or serve as a symbol to indicate a bullet list.
When working on a file in one of the Microsoft Office apps, you can insert tick symbols wherever you deem fit. It’s somewhat like how you add special characters in Windows 10. However, adding them is not as easy as pressing a shortcut. You might have to go through some hoops to figure that out.
1. COPY THE TICK SYMBOL USING CHARACTER MAP

Step 2: Click on the drop-down beside Font.
Step 3: Scroll through the font types until you see Wingdings. You can also type Wingdings to get a faster result.
