Problem with norwegian keyboard

So, because I absolutely despise using- and also don't understand - keyboard shortcuts, I decided to use the norwegian keyboard for the lessons here. I+ve become used to where ø, å, and æ are, but I can't seem to find the accent for the e (é). I was able to write it here because I used the spanish keyboard, but that is way too uncomfortable to use all the time. There must be a way to write accents in the norwegian keyboard, right?

If I'm understanding correctly, you have the Norwegian keyboard installed? If you are on desktop, you will need to hold ALTGR + accent key, and then press e.

The top reply in this discussion has a picture of where those are on the keyboard (it's for Swedish keyboard but the information about the é is the same)

If you are on mobile, hold down the E key and it will bring up a list of accent options.

Yeah, thanks for the help! After trying around a bit, if I press alt gr, then the inverted question mark (in the physical spanish keyboard), and then e, I can write é. è is the same, but with alt instead of alt gr.

é is found at the = key. è is found at the + key. At least that's how my old MacBook works.
