How can I type an umlaut on a Windows PC with an English keyboard?
dvarian 17 weeks ago
We do business with a German company, and there are a number of names and words that have an umlaut (the dots over a vowel in German), and I would write them correctly in our emails. Is there a way to type them on a standard english keyboard? I tried “alt” + some numbers I found on a list that were supposed to do it, but each time I hit the number, my PC just beeps at me.
