Can anyone tell me how to type in french using letter with accents? I can't seem to figure it out.

I guess it's a matter of your computer and your operating system.
I'm running a Mac os X and on mine you can access accented letters through the character panel. I guess it's only similar on other computers. But this is a question for a computer scientist and it's far beyond my capabilities.

This can help on PC :

for example ALT + 164 = ñ (bad example this is spanish accent... lol)
ALT + 135 = ç

Glad you got some help here, Ken.

I have a chart that I printed out from somewhere (?) next to my computer with just about every mark you could make. Always "alt" and then some number.

However, they use Macs where I work and I've been doing everything in Spanish for the past few months. It's even easier on a Mac. For accents: option-e. For ñ: option-n.

Learning umlauts on a Mac comes next....

Cheers,

Alan

My son gets a laptop for a grad present from high school. Deal is, he has to figure out how to work it, then teach me :okok:

If he has time! :lol:

I've been trying for a year to get my daughter to give me a lesson on Face Book, but she doesn't have time because she's always chatting on her Face Book page! :roll:
