How to type French accents on my Mac keyboard
You can type French accents on a Mac keyboard by using a combination of keystrokes. Here’s how:
- Accent aigu (é): Press and hold the “e” key, then type “e” again.
- Accent grave (è): Press and hold the “option” key and the “`” key (located on the left side of the 1 key), then type “e”.
- Accent circonflexe (ê): Press and hold the “option” key and the “^” key (located on the left side of the 6 key), then type “e”.
- Accent tréma (ë): Press and hold the “option” and “u” key, then type “e”.
You can also use the built-in Character Viewer on your Mac to insert accents by searching for the desired accent and clicking on it. To open the Character Viewer, press “control” + “command” + “space”.
Note: These instructions may vary depending on the version of your Mac operating system and keyboard layout. If you are using a different keyboard layout, refer to the instructions provided by Apple or the manufacturer of your keyboard.
