First..i Suggest you to download this app "SpecialChars" I search so many app to make a special character But this is the best App
Display in SpecialChar app-you can copy paste hundreds Classic symbol from this app to copy and paste Symbol
http://fsymbols.com/all/ You also can copy paste symbol with that URL
Scroll to the bottom•Please tab the pitcure above-you'll see a create a short cut-tab it
And copy a symbol and paste it to the prase box-and write a word (ex:apple) on the short cut box ..then tab save
Now you can make a symbol when you write(Apple)-to make it a symbol press "space" on your keyboard" and when you dont want to make a symbol by write"Apple" just tab the symbol above the word "Apple"
When you tab "scape" on your keyboard it will automaticaly turn to Apple logo ""
And you can add another symbol like me
And you also can write this cool symbol on your folder's name
