4. Double-click or hit Insert to add it to your document or spreadsheet.

That's all. Alternatively, you can change the font to wingdings and use the keyboard shortcut ALT + 0252 (i.e Press and hold the ALT key and type 0252) to get the tick.
For a tick box, the shortcut is ALT + 0254.
Don't forget to change the font from Wingdings after the tick has been added.
