    Hi, I have a bilingual keyboard that came with the Laptop 2-1 and tried the French Canada and French Canadian Multilingual Standard Keyboard layout.

    I can find have 5 accents on the keyboard, however I am unable to find the other accents. How can I find the others accents?

    Is there a special key to find the other accents?

    I have a ASUS Notebook, Zenbook series Flip model: UX461UA. It is to be noted there is NOT a numeric keyboard with this model. This model came with Windows 10.

    Thanks for your help. Roger

    Hi Roger,

    firstly, take a look in Settings > Time & Language > Language and click on any languages you have installed with a left click and then on options to see if anything is missing.

    Second, see if you can add another keyboard if necessary.

    Third, click on the language button (bottom right by the clock) in the taskbar and see what you have there!. That's all I've got. :):):)

    I have no knowledge of French Canadian, but I would think that if you chose just French, it would do the trick?
    But, reading your post, do you mean the accents are just not available on the keyboard markings?
    What are the missing accents?

    I have a similar problem with a couple of Danish symbols. All I do, for the missing ones, is press the appropriate key (´`´ ^) etc and then the letter. Sometimes the shift key is required, according to your particular keyboard layout.
    eg:
    éèê

    As a slow two finger typist I have a piece of paper with the Alt-nnn codes for all the useful things that are not on the keyboard but that are in the character set. Accents for French , GBP, Euros and cents.

    Thanks for your reply there is only one marking: É and the other 4 accents I found was by guessing
    using different keys.

    Hi Roger,

    have you tried the on-screen keyboard and does that help at all?.

    Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard > Use the On-Screen Keyboard (Windows symbol + Ctrl + o) + Related Settings (EG: Typing): :):):)

    Hi Wolfie, thankyou for your reply, I did not realized that the OSK was available. It does help. Furthermore, I found out that using a dead key: ^ plus the character would add the
    accent
    to the letter: â ê î ô û. So yes thankyou
