If you're using Microsoft Windows XP: Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then Character Map.
If you're using Microsoft Windows 2000, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Character Map.
Scroll until you find the degree symbol. Click select and copy. Then click Paste wherever you wish to insert it.


This works in windows 7 also 25º
