The registered trademark symbol, also known as the “R” inside a circle, is a symbol that signifies that the word, phrase, or image is a government-registered trademark.

Take a look at your computer keyboard, and you’ll quickly realize there is no registered trademark symbol on any of the keypads. Fortunately, you can create the “R” symbol with the circle around it by pressing specific keys simultaneously. Pressing these keys at the same time will make the registered trademark symbol “®” appear.
