Hi guys,
I want to make it so that if i hold down Ctrl+e+/ I get an é
or if i hold down Ctrl+n+~ I get a ñ

Etc...

Can someone tell me how to do this for free? Will I need a macros/keyboard shortcut program to do this? If so, which one will probably do the best job?

Thanks,
Dom

Unfortunately most CTRL+key combinations are already in use in Windows and various programs - for example, CTRL+N is the hotkey to open a new tab or a new window in pretty much all programs.

A far easier solution is to look at the Character Map:

To inefficient :)
I wouldn't necessarily need the Ctrl key though, I could use the ALT key or a function key...
Do you know how?

(Thanks for the tips so far by the way).
