Wingding Arrows

Okay, I've been looking all over the internet for the past 2 hours trying to find arrows that look like the ones in these icons

I've discovered that it is part of the Wingding 3 font (which I have) ... however, I can't seem to figure out whay keys to use to produce it. I came across a page that give the HTML codes, but that's it.

If anyone knows the trick to this please, please share it with me as I'm on the verge of pulling my hair out!

[edit] Thank you to brakspants for helping me out with this. Gah .. so simple, yet so difficult. Computers ...

PSP Help...

I have PSP7 and last night when I went to insert text into a pic, the program froze on me and then after a minute or so, had to force close and a message popped up saying it had experienced a 'run time error'. Today when I went to use PSP and tried to insert text, the program just immediate shut itself down. I can use all the other functions, but not inserting text. Does this problem sound familiar to anyone? Any advice to fix it? Help!

Scratch disks?

Hello, I am using Adobe Photoshop 7 and whenever I try to start it, a little box pops up that says, "Cannot initialize Photoshop because the scratch disks are full." What are the scratch disks, and how can I empty them, if they are able to be emptied? Is there a way I can solve this problem? Please help me. I want to make some icons and I only use my Paint Shop Pro to make mini movies. I don't want to have to start all over and learn Paint Shop Pro.

Animated Icon Sizes?

Yesterday I made an animated icon for my journal but when I went to upload it it was too big. I worked really hard on this icon and I love how it turned out. Does anyone know how I can reduce the size of the icon so I can use it? This has happened to me before with an icon I made for a friend but I could never figure out how to reduce the file size. I'm using Adobe ImageReady to make my animations. Thanks guys!

text related question

I was wondering if anyone would be able to explain how to make the rectangle that the text is on in this icon:

Or if anyone can point me towards a tutorial that could explain it to me.
I was also wondering if anyone can tell what font is being used.

Oh, and I'm using PSP8.

Thanks for any suggestions!
