Keyboard

I installed the Spanish keyboard on my computer, but it's not an on-screen keyboard, so I can't figure out where the keys are. There must be some easy way to type in Spanish?

Plus on this website I don't want to keep clicking the drop-down box. I want to be able to type normally from my keyboard.

There are two kinds of keyboard for typing in Spanish: Spanish, and Latin American and both are mostly the same as English one with small differences:
Both have letter Ñ next to the L, so it's only one key to type it.
The Spanish one has the accent (´) next to the Ñ, and the Latin American one has it next to the P.
The umlaut (¨) for both is shift + ´
For the accented letters to appear, you only need to type the accent (nothing will change) and then the letter (the letter will appear with the accent).

I've attached views of the whole keyboard display for both.

If I were to buy a keyboard like that. I think it would be missing some keys. They must have removed something to make room for those additional characters.

Do you know where I can get one on Amazon? I've been looking for one, but I can't find one. When I search nothing comes up for Spanish keyboard. I am learning LA Spanish.

Yes, after installing the keyboard (for free), the stickers can be applied to remind oneself of the key functions.

I ordered a keyboard. I think the Spanish keyboard should work for English too? So I should only need to use that one.

@Depilego: The difference is just where the symbols are, but a Spanish keyboard has everything you need to type in English.

@Rusty: Those stickers would have been heaven long ago, when I had to write the characters on a keyboard protector, because they faded all the time and I had to redraw them every day.

I tried some of those stickers once with Korean and they didn't stay on and they covered up the original letters so I couldn't use English anymore.

I just got a Dell Spanish keyboard. I think that should be a good one. Plus I have a gift card so it didn't cost me anything.

I hope I got the right one: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
