How to Make the Infinity Symbol on a Keyboard

Computer keyboards have keys for letters, numbers and popular symbols. Although not every symbol can be represented on the keyboard itself, there is usually a way to add most symbols to your document using certain codes or by hitting a series of keys. One of these symbols is the infinity symbol, which looks like the number eight turned on its side. The series of keys that need to be input in order to make the symbol appear vary based on your operating system and whether you have a separate keypad.
