Delta symbol in Windows 7?

I've been using the standard "\U+0394" in Civil 3d for years to insert the delta symbol, but wanted to determine how to do it in Windows.  I've found plenty of how-to's on the web, but they seem to be for XP, not Windows 7.  These include Alt+0394 and Δ neither of which work in Word or Outlook.  BTW, I'm not interested in the filled symbol, just the open one.

 

Anybody know a way to do this?

 

Thanks

It took me posting the question before the solution presented itself.

For Windows applications, use

0394 then Alt+

 

Works in Word and Outlook.

I apologize for the confusion - I left out an important key stroke for the Windows portion.

 

For getting the delta symbol in Word, Outlook, etc. type:

0394 then "Alt" and "x" together.

You can also get this symbol by going to the ribbon - "Insert" --> "Symbols" and scrolling.  At the bottom of the dialoque, you will see the shortcut keys.
