This also includes buttons on electronic (on screen) keyboards, so if you don't see any of these on your keyboard its because of that.

The Top Ten

IT'S A BULLET POINT. It is very useful when making lists! - Joansb

This is a multiplication symbol... - iiKyodaiKickz

Isn't that a multiplication sign?

Never seen that before - Songsta41

What the heck is this?!?!?!? How does it help me?!?!?!? What does it mean?!? Everyone in favor of this being replaced by a division symbol like this comment. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

This means section. If you're too lazy to type that word, just use this symbol. It had been neglected, but it's useful.

This is a rip-off Simoleon. - Merilille

This is for fancy stuff. It's not useless. - iiKyodaiKickz

Useless waste of electrons. Nobody uses this. It's a trade mark and many companies have this, but nobody wants to waste time using it. Nobody writes Disney like this: Disney™, or Listerine™ or Wal-Mart™. Complete waste. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

In case you're wondering, I did not type 3 periods. It's actually a full-blown button dedicated to 3 periods pushed together. This is the most wasteful thing ever! I think its meant to help people, but its not. It would take me 2 seconds just to tap the period button three times, like this useless button. Whoever made this just ran out of ideas. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Isn't it grammatically correct to have four periods? Or have I being doing it wrong my whole life? - Puga

If it's at the end of a sentence, yes...

If it's in the middle of a sentence... No. - PetSounds

Once again, USELESS. What is it, the corner of a box? I have only seen this used once, and that was in a boring document. My only use of this would be to make one of those cute pixel art stuff people do with their computers, but I don't know how to do that. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I think it's useful to separate or use as a bullet point. - Joansb

What's so wrong with L? Or is it I... - Songsta41

7 Second Shift Button

I need only one shift key (that NOW I'M USING). - zxm

Like Chromebooks. They have 2 shift keys instead of one, and they could use THAT for a Caps Lock button!

8 x

Sorry if this offends anyone, but I need to put some letter on this list. It's rarely used, can double over as a multiplication sign, and I'm starting to hate those dumb homeworks that ask you "What is 36421379848689589 x 463? " Also, it looks kind of like a rip-off of the letter K. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

What if you want to spell 'xylophone', 'Tyrannosaurus Rex' or somehing like that?

9 Num Lock
10 ©

LOTS of people care if a company is copyrighted! - iiKyodaiKickz

Again, NO ONE CARES IF A COMPANY IS COPYRIGHTED. (Or whatever it stands for.) If I'm writng down the name of a company, I'm not going to put The Hunger Games© or whatever it goes by. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

If you don't want plagiarizing scumbags to steal your stuff then you are gonna care. - ChefSkinner

The Contenders

11 Caps Lock

No its important. people just use shift instead of it. - zxm

12 ®

Another worthless thing. I won't waste a precious second to write something like Febreze®. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

13

The heck is this!? - SamuiNeko

This is just 2 backwards capital p's with the holes shaded in. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

14 Scroll Lock
15 &

Blue. You're posting senselessly. This is not a useless symbol. - iiKyodaiKickz

I hate it. Ugly and useful for only company names. Which is exactly why I want to change the '&' to 'and' in that sentence above those pictures on TheTopTens' home page. By the way, am I the only one who wants the '&' changed? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Hey man, where would we be without M&Ms & Mike&Ikes? Oh, & don't forget using it as a replacement for the word 'And'.

16 The windows key

Why can't I just click the start button? - GamerDudecnr
