A propos des accents?  Lisez bien la suivante:

1.  Here is one way from aboutfrench.com (In my opinion the way that takes the most effort, meaning more key strokes!):

This is courtesty of  Laura K. Loveless, French professor and who runs the aboutfrench.com website:

In my opinion the best way to type accents on a PC is with the international keyboard, which requires a simple control panel configuration – there is no keyboard to purchase or software to download.If you’re really set against the international keyboard, you can type accented characters with ALT codes, which use the ALT key and a 3 or 4 digit code. However, ALT codes only work with the numeric keypad, NOT the row of numbers across the top of your keyboard. So they won’t work on a laptop unless you hit number lock to activate the number pad « built into » the right-side of your keyboard, which is a big hassle because then the letters won’t work. Bottom line, if you’re on a laptop, choose a different keyboard rather than messing around with ALT codes.

To type accents with ALT codes, hold down the ALT key, then on the numeric keypad type the three or four digits listed here. When you release the ALT key, the character will appear.

2.  Here is another way, using the control keys (this is my favorite way with Word because it means less key strokes!):
Special Characters on the PC

(with Windows 95, 98, NT)

Some word processors, such as Microsoft Word, allow you to input special characters by using Control key shortcut combinations.  Press and hold the Control key (Ctrl on you keyboard), then press the special key indicated.  Release the two keys, then press the key for the letter you want accented.

l’accent aigu Ctrl- (Apostrophe)
l’acdfent grave Ctrl-` (Key just to the left of the 1 key)
l’accent circonflexe Ctrl-^ (Karrot or shift 6, you will have to press Ctrl, Shift and 6 at the same time)
le tréma Ctrl-: (Colon, you will have to press Ctrl, Shift and ; at the same time)
La cédille Ctrl-, (Comma)
