Whether coding a game or writing a blog, shooting a quick tweet or writing a college essay, our professional and personal writing is usually done on a standard keyboard. Does the work, but unless you have a special product with additional bells and whistles you will not have easy access to certain characters as currency, mathematical symbols, fractions or symbols of copyrights or registered trademarks.

This is especially frustrating when you try to write a foreign language, one that uses accents, umlauts, accents or circumflexes. There are no keys to that, just to reassign the entire keyboard, what can you do? In Windows 10, there are actually built-in shortcut commands for all types of characters, you just need to know how to enter them. Here is how to do it in three easy steps:

How to enter foreign characters

1. Turn on the numerical lock

You may not need to perform this step in Windows 7, 8 or Vista, but in Windows 10, you must use the numeric keypad to the right of the keyboard. If you have it disabled, press Num Lock to perform the following steps.

2. Click where you need your character to go.

Simply click on the place of the document where you need that accented letter or a special symbol.

3. Alt + write the code

Holding down the Alt key, Check any of the following four-digit codes. Release the Alt button and your chosen character will appear right where you want it. Make sure that when you do this you are using the numeric keypad, and not the numbers at the top of the keyboard. The numeric keys on the top of your keyboard will not work. Here is a list of some common symbols:
