When it is on, a light is displayed indicating that when the keys are pressed the numbers will be active. Next, you need to locate the Alt key which you will find to the left of the space bar on your keyboard. Now press and hold down the Alt key and then using the numeric keypad key in the numbers 133 and then release the Alt key.
You will now see a lower case 'a' with a grave accent. Okay, let's try another one, the letter 'a' with a circumflex. For this, you will use the numbers 131 .
So hold down the Alt key and then using the number pad key in the numbers 131 and then release the Alt key. For some words, you may need to join an 'a' and 'e' together. And to get this is easy.
So hold down the Alt key and then key in the numbers 145 and then release the Alt key. So as you can see, all you need to do is remember the numbers that you need to use. There are many different shortcuts that you can learn using a computer keyboard but the most timesaving of these is learning to type correctly.
