I have a question about typing letters with accents. I am in the U.S., and I know the codes to do it on a desktop computer, but it doesn't work on my laptop. Anyone have a way to type letters with accents using a U.S. keyboard on a laptop computer (Dell, if that matters). Grazie mille!
Hi Arturo.c: I'm glad you posted here because I have been having a few issues with using accents just this past week or so. (You may have noticed?) (Often, I just find the particular character needed and copy and paste, or if I'm short for time, do the “unforgiveable” and leave it, which is what has happened lately.) I have tried what you suggested here but it doesn't work for me. Anyways, I've had a little time now and have had a play on my newish laptop and discovered an incredibly easy way of adding accents/codes.
Click on “Insert” Click on “Special Character” Scroll down. Click on the character you need.
Hopefully this info might be of use to someone with the same feature on their laptop Angela
