Typing French accents in Windows
You have several options, based on your computer and current keyboard:
- If you currently use the English-US keyboard layout, the international keyboard is far and away your best option for typing accents. It is not a separate keyboard, just a Windows setting.
- If you use an English-UK keyboard, the UK extended keyboard is the best.
- Your other options are the French keyboard, the Canadian French keyboard, and ALT codes.
