Writing accent marks using only keyboard

Is there a way to write accent marks without using mouse? I don't have Spanish keyboard. Is it possible to do? Third-party programs?

Update: Found what i was looking for: Sorry to bother you ;)

Yeah, there are thankfully Alt-Codes (as @gravitron89 said), and it would be awesome if DuoLingo could provide such information when hovering over one of the symbol buttons on an input box.

Actually, I'll go create a separate discussion and see if I can get some feedback from the devs. If you agree and want to support it, you should go to the discussion page and upvote it so it gets noticed :-).

When using a Windows PC go to -> control panel -> Region and Language -> Keyboards and Language click on change keyboard and click onto Add ... Choose the ES version you like (I have Spain, International Sort) You have then in your taskbar different languages you can click on. I have then also a little photo, I have downloaded from the internet, which I put in front of the screen because the layout is different to the British English keyboard I have (you can also print it).

I recall a post of mine that touched vaguely on that subject:

Suggestion: Why don't you search the forum before posting a question or insight.

Investigate using the "Alt GR" / "option" key on your type of keyboard.
