There are more than 600 arrows in Unicode. They have different functions and play different roles. They can be used to indicate directions 🡲, to define logical flows or for visual reference of arrow-keys .

Arrow appereance can be absolutly different: arrows can be wavy , zigzag , heavy 🡇, different directed , circle , double-headed , feathered or ribbon-like .

Mostly there are horizontal arrows encoded in Unicode: 🢠 to the left and to the right 🢡. However, there're some kinds of arrows in Unicode to index other directions: upwards 🠕 and downwrads 🠗.

All simple single-headed or double-headed arrows can be implemented by different character encodingsare of 8 directions: 2 horizontal, 2 vertical and 4 diagonal.

In 1991 the first version of Unicode 1.0 contained 130 arrows.

The base arrows are placed in  Arrows 2190–21FF section.

Other arrows occupies next sections of Unicode as well:

If you are intrested in the meaning of any arrow, you should mouse over a symbol to see its name. Also you can move to the page dedicated to that symbol. Arrows can indicate force directions in Physics, they can be used to point directions in public places or as Maths symbols. There're plenty of roles arrows can play, and some of the arrows meanings you can see following.

Long arrows In Unicode, long arrows occupy the range U+27F5...U+21F. Long arrows differ from their short versions not only styllistically with their glyphes but also semantically. For instance, short arrows are used for limits: lim 0→infinity. And long arrows are used with transforms (eg: Fourier transform).

1. Make sure you switch on the NumLock, 2. Press and hold down the Alt key with your left hand, 3. Type the Alt Code value of the arrow you want.

Example: If you need an arrow down symbol , type 25 on the numeric pad, holding the Alt key.

Our website is a goldmine of such information. All you need is to move to the page of the arrow you need. For example here: Downwards Arrow and in section «Technical details» you will find Alt Code. In the case above: 25.
