The counterclockwise open circle arrow represents counterclockwise rotation. The easiest way to insert it into a document is to paste it from one source to another. Your word processor may also include it in its "symbols" section. There is also a way to directly add the symbol into any Windows application using only your keyboard.

Click your cursor where you'd like to insert the symbol.

Press the "Num Lock" button on your keyboard. To type a counterclockwise symbol, use the keyboard shortcut "Alt + 8634." To create a clockwise symbol, use the shortcut "Alt + 8635."
