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.).
admin   (17 February 2015 12:00 PM) [Entry]

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