Hi, I'm Noah, and today we're going to learn how to use a circumflex accent in a Windows document. A circumflex accent is a character that's used in vowels in languages like French that use the Roman alphabet. Open the character map by opening the start menu and choosing programs, then accessories and then system tools, followed by character map. Then select the font that you want to use. Once you've selected the font, locate the vowel with the circumflex that you want to use. You can scroll down to locate all the different characters. In this example let's try an E with a circumflex accent. Once you've selected the letter, click the copy button to copy the vowel into the clipboard. Now you can go to your document and insert your cursor at the spot where you want to insert the vowel and the circumflex. Once you've selected that spot you can simply paste it into the document by pressing control plus V from the keyboard or paste from the edit menu.
