How to type accented characters on Yoga s740 (Alt+... does not work)

2020-01-05, 18:25 PM

Hello guys,

anybody have a clue about how to type some accented characters on this notebook (s740)? I'm trying to write the Spanish "n" but I can not find any valid combination of keys (Alt+164 does not work).... Thank you for helping

You might find this way easier. You can add a Spanish keyboard that you can switch to.

Hi ,

 

On laptops you have to hold down Fn+Alt+164 and make sure you have Numlock turned on as well.

 

Hope this helps and let us know how it goes,



Jeremy

Thank you for your help Jeremy, but that does not work (Fn+Alt+164) I did turn on the Numlock (I did that by opening the Keyb on the screen and turned that on in the number pad section) Nothing......

Actually it only works if I keep the virtual keyboard in the screen and type Alt on the actual keyboard and 164 on the numberpad on the screen, but does not work if I use the number keys on the actual keyboard....

Thank you Dylan, but so far the only way I found to type special characters on this notebook (s740) is via using the virtual windows keyboard on the screen and press Alt+164 on its number pad .... I don't understand way I just can not type Alt+164 directley on the phisical keyboard... (first someone told me to activate Numlock but still would not work....)

Hi ,

 

Is the Alt key working with any other Alt hotkeys? and is the keyboard layout set to United States english?

 

Regrads,

 

Jeremy

Hello Jeremy,  Alt key it is working for when I get the Windows on screen keyboard ant press Alt (on the phisical keyboard) and then 164 I do get the spnish n ...... Here you are.......  ñ 

I'm in Italy and I have a QWERTY keyboard set for italian language, but that should not be the problem since it works fine on my regular desktop PC....(press Alt+164)
