Tip of the Week: How to Type Accent Marks and Symbols

When it comes to businesses-to-business relationships, the global impact of the Internet has unlocked quite a few doors. Rather than developing relationships with exclusively businesses in their region, it’s not uncommon for a small manufacturer of model airplanes in Iowa to use the web to find the vendor that can meet all of their needs, even if they’re located in Austria. Doing business internationally means there may be an occasion where you’ll need to communicate in another language. Fortunately, for Windows 10 users, it has never been easier to switch your computer or mobile device’s language.

This doesn’t just apply to the touch keyboard. It applies to your physical one, as well.

Hint: If you don’t see the language you’re looking for in the list of available languages, you can add and edit your list by selecting Language preferences.

Using Another Version of Windows?
For those of you who are using Windows 7 or 8.1 (or even Vista or XP), in addition to seriously thinking about upgrading your operating system, you can still use ALT Codes. A numeric list of codes is assigned to the accented letter or symbol in question. While pressing down the ALT key, type the four-digit code on the numeric keypad at the right edge of the keyboard.
