Spanish Mama's help me out? How do I use ~ and the accent when typing an email??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My family is in Uruguay & Argentina, and I hate writing to them and seeing my words in caps b/c I don't know how to use the ~ and accent mark to my typing.  I know it can be done because they do it, anyone able to help me out?  As it is my writing in Spanish is less than stellar since I was raised here and never had to write in Spanish.  Thank you so much!!

If you have windows, you can activate the Spanish keyboard on the control panel. Then the keyboard will offer you ñ instead of ; and accents using the [ key. Here's a how to for Vista: http://babelhut.com/languages/spanish/setting-up-a-spanish-keyboard-in-windows-vista/

yeah there is another way to do it using Alt and then some number combination, but I think it's much easier to just have the two language keyboards installed and switch between them. My machine is set up to switch keyboards by pressing Alt + Shift, so it's very simple.
