Adding spanish accents, question marks, etc.

I was wondering, how do you do this without buying a spanish keyboard? I'm on a laptop, and I can't replace the keyboard. I know how to do the ñ, but that's it.

Thanks in advance.

If he has a laptop, surely he hasn't the numeric keyboard, so he won't be able to use alt.

You can also look for some text written in Spanish and copy - paste the accented vowels in a document, but it could be too slow when writing.

Yeah.

But I have the num lock, and the number pad. It's just already on certain keys, like u,i,o,p, etc.

I just don't know the codes.

Of course, the num lock, I never use it, so I forgot it

There might be easier ones, but the ones I've memorized are

¿ - alt+0191
¡ - alt+0161 (inverted exclamation mark)
á - alt+0225
é - alt+0233
í - alt+0237
ó - alt+0243
ú - alt+0250
ñ - alt+0241
