Checkmark is a symbol that some times we use but not available directly on the keyboard. To display a checkmark we need to use alt code. The alt code for the checkmark is ALT+251. The alternative way is to use the character map ( if you are not connected to the internet) or use a website like Emojipedia.org to copy a checkmark to your computer using any application.
