Writing in Italian

If you write in Italian regularly or on a laptop, the best way to type accents on a PC is with the international keyboard. But if you only type them occasionally and you have a full keyboard, you can use ALT codes. They work with the numeric keypad, NOT the row of numbers across the top of your keyboard.

 In other words, these codes will not work on a laptop until you have a dedicated numeric keypad.

To type Italian accents with ALT codes, hold down the ALT key, then type the three or four digits listed here on the numeric keypad. Release the ALT key and the accented letter or special character will appear.
