Want to type é but Keyboard has no Numeric Keypad

HP Spectre 13-4111 x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all.

 

I'm confused. How do you do ALT codes without the numeric keypad? I mean the Fn key is there, but then what? I have since found that you can insert them via the on screen touch keyboard, but surely you can still do this on the keyboard right?

 

What I want to type is é which is usually Fn + ALT + 130.

 

I contacted HP support who had no idea what-so-ever. I've done a search of the site and couldn't find anything either.

 

Anyone got any answers?

 

Thanks,

 

Pony

Want to type é but Keyboard has no Numeric Keypad

Hello Pony,

 

I don't have an answer to make the keyboard create a numpad but I read about adding Scripts to turn certain keys into the numpad. I have not used those.

I do use a work around that will hopefully help a little.

 

Turn on the On Screen Keyboard.

Type in the Search bar Run and select it.

Type the letters OSK and hit Enter.

When the keyboard opens, click on Options.

When the dialog box opens, tick the box for Turn on Numeric Keypad.

Hit OK.

Select the Numlock key on the on screen keyboard to show the numpad.

One the physical keyboard, hold the Alt key down and click on 0233 of the On Screen Numpad.

( I just use the Alt key shortcuts rather than Fn+Alt. Its just easier)

Hope that helps.

Hi Photoray002

 

Thanks for your post. I have come up with 2 solutions.

 

1. On the screen keyboard, if you do a long left click on the e, the é comes up and you can click it. That also works with other letters 2, so you don't need to activate the Num Pad.

 

2. If you change the keyboard type from US to US International, you can then cick Left ALT + e and the é is inserted.

 

I went with option 2 as this is quicker.

 

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it 🙂
