If you don’t have a specialized keyboard, you have to do a little extra work to type letters with accent marks in Microsoft Word. Here are a few ways to get it done.
If you type regularly in a language other than English, you probably have this all worked out already. Perhaps you even use a specialized keyboard that makes typing letters with accent marks easier. But if you’re typing primarily in English, there are still times you might need to type an accented letter. After all, English uses many words borrowed from other languages—like déjà vu, jalapeño, doppelgänger, and résumé, for example. And while we generally just type those words without accents in English, sometimes it’s nice to take the more formal approach. In the cases where you do, Microsoft Word provides a few easy ways to make it happen.
