In your computer's setting, switch your keyboard language to US International. That allows you to type a double quote " and then e to make ë.

Alternatively, you can use these alt codes, by pressing the left alt and typing 137 (for the ë other characters have different numbers). On a Mac you press the e for a few seconds and when the menu appears type 2 (since it's the 2nd option in the menu), in the same manner you can write e.g. ï, ø and é.
