Correct typing?
 
How do I make it so I can type correctly in Spanish. I want to be able to type the accents, the squigly (technichal term :lengua:) above the "n", and the upside down exclamations and question marks. Anybody know how.

There is an 'Accents' drop-down menu just above the area you use for typing. It contains all the special characters you'll need to write in Spanish.

Gotcha. I never said I was computer savy:D

Using the Accents drop down menu is the easiest method, unless you want to learn how to configure your computer to be able to type them directly from the keyboard. How you do that depends on which operating system you use.

The technical term is "tilde".

The letter 'n' with the small 'squiggle' on it is called "ee". Just for your information.. ;)

Thanks Luna. I just need to read more so I know where to use these.

If you're running Windows you can configure your Keyboard for Spanish characters, to where you click the ALT key + N for or ALT + O for , for instance.

Let me know if you want instructions on how to set that up.

Kind of off the topic of typing but while we are talking about setting up a Spanish keyboard in Windows...one thing helps me is setting the language to Spanish for something I know well - I have set my facebook language to Spanish because I know what all the options mean in English by heart so when I set the language to Spanish I could easily translate the words. I have since set my windows display language to Spanish too.

I didnt know that!

However when I have my keyboard set to Spanish I use the " key to "ready" the letters for a tilde and the ; key for a .

For example if I want to put the tilde over the "o" I would press " once then press o.
