You can copy individual characters or a group of characters to the clipboard, and then paste them into any compatible program. Or, depending on the program you are using (such as WordPad), you can even copy characters by dragging them from Character Map directly into an open document.
You can use Character Map to search for characters by viewing the Unicode character maps that are associated with each font.
