How to Type the ñ (enye or N with tilde)

On Windows:
Just hold down ALT and type 0241 on your numeric keypad and you will get a nice ñ printed for you.

Again, that’s:
ALT + 0241 = ñ

And capital Ñ is:
Alt + 0209 = Ñ

Found this info on this page here with all the characters you could want.

On Ubuntu (Linux):
Go to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard and change the Compose key to something you don’t use like your right windows key.
Here is a screenshot of doing the setup.

Then you can type:
Compose key n ~ to get ñ
Compose key e ‘ to get é
etc…


Thanks to everyone on this forum post for the help!
