Keyboard shortcuts: Apply superscript or subscript

Select the character that you want to format.

For superscript, press Ctrl, Shift, and the Plus sign (+) at the same time. For subscript, press Ctrl and the Equal sign (=) at the same time.

What is a subscript 1?

A small letter or number placed slightly lower than the normal text. Examples: • the number 1 here: A_{1} (pronounced “A sub 1” or just “A 1”) • the letter m here: x_{m} (pronounced “x sub m” or just “x m”)

Hold down Alt and key in 0178 and let go of Alt. A superscript 2 will appear. Incidentally, if you needed ‘cubed’ instead of ‘squared’ then type 0179 and you’ll get a superscript 3. In fact, this will work anywhere in Windows or online – even in Word.
