Accents and tildes

How do you add accents and tildes when typing in Spanish? The answers I googled did not seem to work on my computer and seemed specific to typing into Word. I'm interested on how to do this in my browser.


If it matters, I'm using Firefox on a PC laptop.

I agree with Spangola. It is the best way. I have 3 keyboards in my computer and in my telephone.

If you have Windows 7:


Control Panel ---> Clock, Language, and Region ---> Change keyboards or other input methods ---> Change keyboards ---> Click Add... ---> Select Spanish ---> Click Ok


You know when you have another keyboard installed because a new symbol appears at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen beside your battery life, date & time, connection etc. It's the two letters 'EN' when you're using the English keyboard and 'ES' when using the Spanish.



You can toggle quickly between languages by pressing 'SHIFT' + 'ALT'.

I use the website below:


Click the letter you want and then copy. If write an message, just write there and then copy and paste.
