How to type an accent

accented e

This one’s easy. If you want to type an accent, it’s a two-stepper:

  1. Hold the Option key down and type the “e.” Note: it will appear that nothing happens.
  2. Let go of the Option key and type the “e” again. Voilá!

As you might guess by my “voilá,” you can actually type any vowel in Step 2. Step 1 is always the same: Option-e. But Step 2 can be a, e, i, o, or u.
