Typing You can type accented characters with ALT codes, which use the ALT key and a 3 or 4 digit code. However, ALT codes only work with the numeric keypad, NOT the row of numbers across the top of your keyboard. So they won't work on a laptop unless you hit number lock to activate the number pad "built into" the right-side of your keyboard. To type accents with ALT codes, hold down the ALT key, then on the numeric keypad type the three or four digits listed here. When you release the ALT key, the character will appear. ä ALT + 132 Ä ALT + 142 ö ALT + 148 Ö ALT + 153 ü ALT + 129 Ü ALT + 154 ß ALT + 0223 Euro symbol € ALT + 0128
