International Keyboard

Instead of memorizing a long list of Alt number combinations, or using the Character Map, you could change your language and layout from English-US to United States-International (or any other available language on your system).

Here's how:

Single-click the Start menu, mouse over Settings, and then single-click the Control Panel.

Double-click the Keyboard icon and then click the Language tab

Click Add.

Under "Keyboard layout," place a checkmark next to United States-International.

Click OK.

Click Apply. You may be asked to insert your Windows system disk to finish loading the process.


You can type in other languages without knowing the Alt codes for a non-English alphabet. For example, type ~ followed by N to get Ñ. A tilde followed by any letter will place the appropriate accent on the letter you choose.
