So then, who knows how to make accents on an English keyboard? The old chart that I used to use where pressing ALT and numbers no longer works and I have not found a replacement.

Okay. I think I've got it. You have to press number lock first, then hold down the alt key and type the number codes using the numbers to the right of the keyboard.

On a Mac, there are no number codes. Most use the option key, while others are available in a Special Characters drop-down under the Edit function.
For example, the ˜ alone is OPTION n, but typing another n after releasing the Option key results in ñ. Option e, release Option, e, results in é, etc.
Perhaps some of those commands might work on PCs; I wouldn't know.

Foe me, I just press Alt-n, and then n. This is on a Mac. ñ.

Yes Mike, the ALT and Option keys on Macs are the same, depending on which keyboard vintage you have.
Thanks for pointing that out.

Doesn't work for me. I'm a windows girl and gag at the price of anything from Apple.

Yes, Ferret, Apple products do cost more, but I have never had to hire a 'guru', or have anything returned or repaired since my first one in 1984. So, over time, they seem much more dependable and economical. Upgrades are free and the products are very user-friendly.
You might want to consider the long-term cost, compared to just the initial purchase price. I have alwsys been on a strict budget, but Macs just last well, and being so dependable does save both money and frustration.

Neither have I. The only thing I've ever paid for is the transfer of the contents of one computer to another. I could do it myself but prefer to have a tech do it.

If you make it for a Tuesday make it 1:00 or a bit later as the traffic is crazy until then coming from either direction.

Not to be a newb....which of course I am......but "swarm"? By the posts here I am deducing a meet up of folks posting on the board or is it a specific group?

To be literal about it: It's the folks who post on this board setting up a lunch at a local restaurant where they can meet the other posters and chat in person. It's been popular and there have been a number of them over the years.

"Swarm"?...don't know who came up with the name.
So, join this one and have an interesting time.

It started off during a time when local restaurants were struggling during a downturn in the economy. Someone would choose a restaurant they liked and call for a swarm (of customers). It’s side benefit was getting to meet people from the board in person. I believe Oncesubtle is the one who came up with the idea. It is now more just a get together

Yes, the axe murderers have their own table so they can be avoided.
