here are several ways to insert a tick symbol (otherwise known as a check mark) into Microsoft Word.
Method 1 – Font Shortcuts
The most common method is to use either the “Wingdings 2″ font or the “Webdings” font. This can easily be found from the drop-down menu and you will be able to choose from a few different styles of tick marks. Alternatively, use the following shortcuts after having selected Wingdings 2 or Webdings as your font of choice.
