Help:German characters

From GenWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

You can write the German characters (called "Umlaute") by holding down the Alt key and pressing the numbers mentioned below on the numerical keyboard on the right at the same time.
(the numbers above the letters "q w e ... i o p" do not work in this case!):

Character ANSI Code CP850 Code
ä Alt+0228 Alt+132
ö Alt+0246 Alt+148
ü Alt+0252 Alt+129
Ä Alt+0196 Alt+142
Ö Alt+0214 Alt+153
Ü Alt+0220 Alt+154
ß Alt+0223 Alt+225

This way you do not have to copy and paste.
