Hello,
I need to type Spanish characters for online clsss. When I use the ALT+blue number keys it types smiley faces or music notes. I need to use this method to type assignments. How can I change the characters to Spanish letters?

After looking into your question a bit more I saw a few people saying that in order to use the Alt+ codes you need to use the Fn key (Function) + Alt, because these keyboards usually don't have Numpad (i.e. numerical keyboard) unless it's a 17-inch laptop.

So, if you need the 'ñ', use Fn+Alt+164.
