How do you insert "Ñ" using a laptop? without the external number pad.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jet, you can use Character Map. Go to Start button --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Character Map. You can find ñ character. Just copy the character and paste it wherever you want (in Microsoft word, excel, powerpoint, in a website, etc.).

What did you do? You should hold Alt button and press 0241.

TRIPBOY, mahirap din ang copy and paste lalo na kung wala kang original copy ng letter ñ.

I got it guys....press Num Lock first, then hold alt+164 for small enye, hold alt+165 for big enye...

10 admin   (09 December 2012 6:56 PM)
CASE SOLVER, that's another great way of creating the letter enye. It saves one character. biggrin
