Getting accents from a windows keyboard

The problem here is not my knowledge of conjugating the verb, but being able to get the accent on the e from my windows keyboard. How do I do that please?

Hi Michael,

If you do an online search you should be able find such a table that will explain what ALT + keys are required to create the accents you need. I have one but can't remember just where I found it.

ALT + 0233 = é

ALT + 0232 = è

ALT + 0234 = ê

Of course you need to hold down the alt button while you are typing in the numbers.
