Have you ever wanted to type a letter with a particular accent but didn't want to change the keyboard language just for a few letters?

Well there's a quicker way to do this and its by using a combination of the Alt key plus a numeric code.  What you do is hold down the Alt key on your keyboard then with the Alt key held down, press on a numeric code (for example 130) from your keypad.  This would give you the letter é
