My brand new ideapad does not have a numlock keypad (key block) and no numlock key also. So I can't create characters with ALT+0239, ALT+0235 en more of that.
The language is Dutchv(NL) and keyboard is NLD US. I also tried NLD INT and NLD NL.
So who knows the working solution for this?
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Community Forums.
You can try using Windows Character Map.
Just type Character Map into the search box at the bottom of the screen to access it.
I hope this helps answer your query.

Tnank you very much for your answer, Spidey101. I know that option, bur forgot to mention it. I find that a bit 'complicated' or 'time consuming'.
Preferably I'm am looking for a solution with the keyboard settings.

Other would just copy commonly used special keys in a sticky note or notepad to copy and paste but if you would like a to bind it them perhaps using key mapper softwares can be an alternative like discussed here and here.
Using external keyboard or onscreen keyboard switched to numberpad can help with key re maps.

I found another solution I like yo share; definitive the easiest one, i.m.o.:
Now you can combine keys jusrt or right after each other, for example:
è = key left from key '1' (grave, tilde `~) + key e
é = accent key left from ENTER (') + e
ë = SHIFT + accent key left from ENTER (") + e
Same with a, i, u, o
ç - comma + c
In capitals? Hold SHIft key down + accent key left from Enter + e and release SHIFT key
Quotation marks: open and close:
' = comma key + space key
" = Shift + comma + space key
That's it, enjoy.
