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.).

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

8 CASE SOLVER   (09-December-2012 6:50 PM)
I got it guys....press Num Lock first, then hold alt+164 for small enye, hold alt+165 for big enye...
CASE SOLVED!
