Hello Cthulhu,

That's normal. There are too many languages with too many different accents and special characters to include them all on a single keyboard. It's maybe possible, but it would not be very convenient for typing as it would require too long keystroke combinations. So about Spanish, you need a Spanish keyboard or at least a Spanish keyboard layout (just install / add it on your computer) to type all Spanish accents and chars.

Thank you so much for the response but that is my problem, I installed the spanish keyboard and I only have the one accent mark? I opened on-screen keyboard and pressed each key looking for it and nothing, is this just me? thank you so much:)
