Hi, I am Joseph. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will reply shortly.While you are waiting, please let me know if you would like toproceed via text, a phone call, or if you are interested in a remote connection.
First, can you tell me what keyboard you are using? Is it the UK extended version?
Depending if you are using a US or UK keyboard you can use French accents with AltGr or with Ctrl. A great guide and layout for each keyboard and how to use it can be found at https://www.thoughtco.com/how-to-type-french-accents-1372770
Can you go to the site I sent to see the other keys and ways to utilize it?
Ok, I understand so you probably don't have an international keyboard.
Another option is to add an onscreen keyboard to use in the language you prefer. The steps to do this can be found on this Microsoft website. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/on-screen-keyboard-language/3882b6ea-7c2f-4878-b08d-0225d077115e
Thank you for that information.
Have you tried to go to the link I provided and add the keyboard on the screen to be used?
In that case you might have to switch back and forth if Windows doesn't allow the physical keyboard to stay in British version.
You might can run it in virtualbox if you want both going at once.
It is a free product and is good for doing testing like you have a whole new computer setup within your existing one. https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
