CUSTOMIZING YOUR KEYBOARD FOR SPANISH
1. Go into MY COMPUTER
2. Open CONTROL PANEL.
3. Click on KEYBOARD.
4. Select LANGUAGE/PROPERTIES.
6. Set this as your DEFAULT.
7. Press all of the OK's.
To put accents over vowels: apostrophe and then the vowel. ÁÉÍÓÚ , áéíóú
To do ¿ and ¡ : push RIGHT ALT KEY and ! or ? at the same time.
To do ñ: Hold down shift and then hit ~, let off of the shift key, then hit the n.
Ñ : for a capital, hold shift key down.
Alternate ñ: just ~ and then n. Some work that way.
You may have to play with the combinations to get them to work. If one function
works, they all will. It may, however, work a bit differently for your computer.
