Microsoft Word Accent Codes

Typing accent codes in Microsoft Word (or WordPad) is almost as easy as owning a Mac. Thanks to Penn State for this helpful link.

Here are the basic ones. The symbol "V" means any vowel.

Acute ó Ó Control+', V (apostrophe key)
Circumflex ô Ô Shift+Control+^, V
Grave ò Ò Control+`, V
Tilde ñ Ñ Shift+Control+~, V (n, a, o only)
Umlaut ö Ö Shift+Control+:, V (colon key)

See the link for more details and additional characters.
