I really need to know how to type exponents in word or other programs on my
computer. I have a Dell Inspiron notebook. In case you don't know what an
exponent is, its the little number above the first number (base) when your
saying 3 squared. Please help me!!!

Alt-253 for exponent of 2 as in 2²

In Word type other exponents by holding down the Ctrl,
Shift, and + keys, release,
then type the number key.

So to write 4 exponent 5, first type 4 then press Ctrl-
Shift-+ then press 5.

Hi laura,

Press and hold the Ctrl and Shift keys then press the +/= key and let go of
the three keys. Now key in the desired exponent. Repeat the Ctrl-Shift-+/=
combination to return to "normal".

It's known as superscript. You can add buttons to the toolbar or use the Format - Font dialog.
