How to Type Accents on a Desktop Computer Keyboard
Select the uk extended keyboard layout

Average Rating: 0 out of 10
Trying to configure out how to use special characters on a a desktop computer is hard work at times. On a mobile device it's usually hold down the key and see the alternative letter choices selected with you having to add a keyboard language pack in settings.

in windows 10 for the desktop got to control panel.


Clock, Language and Region and change Input Methods.
Change Input Methods
Add Language, then add a language to the list, click on options next to a language in order to select which keyboard you want and you will most probably want to change english uk to uk extended.

However if like me you do this the first time, and add Russian as well, you might get confused if you don't notice which keyboard your using and start typing Russian letters into the search box when trying to find information out on what to do next (as the Russian letters appearing on screen won't match the English letters on the physical keyboard and thus wont return any results or information your after to get your English typing back)

However pressing Windows Key And spacebar enables you to toggle between the keyboard layouts you have selected to use on your machine and it shows up in the bottom right corner of the start menu to the left of the date and time, and clicking on it with the mouse enables you to change the keyboard your using as well as trying to find setting on the menu.

So which keys do what on the uk extended keyboard?

Windows: UK Extended

If you currently use a UK keyboard, you will probably find the UK extended keyboard the easiest way to type French accents. The keyboard layout will be maintained, but you can type most accents with the AltGr key, which is located to the right of the spacebar. this commands are for the uk extended keyboard use:

To type accent grave (à, è, etc), type ` (to the left of 1) then the vowel.
Accent aigu (é), click AltGr and e at the same time.
Cédille (ç), click AltGr and c at the same time.
Circonflexe (ê), click AltGr and ^ at the same time, then the vowel.
Tréma (ö) click AltGr and " at the same time, then the vowel.

trying to either get a different keyboard to plug in, or an overlay with other letters printed on might be an idea if using different keyboards on a desktop, as mobile devices it's just a touch screen so tends to be less a problem to physical keyboards which I started taking set up for granted after configuring a long time ago et non je ne suis pas apprends encore Russian et ne sera jamais à courant progrès

en tout cas, auvoir pour maintenant
