When writing text on your Mac, entering accented characters is very easy. You just have to read and use the keys corresponding to the characters with accent. On the other hand, it is more complicated to enter an uppercase letter with an accent on Mac . At least when you do not know the manipulation because in reality, it is a real child’s play.

In this article, we will see together how to make an uppercase letter with an accent in macOS . Let’s go !

Insert an uppercase letter with accent on Mac

To insert an uppercase letter with an accent on Mac , there are several solutions available to you. However, I prefer to walk you through the easiest and fastest method . Especially since it works for all letters. Whether you want to insert an uppercase E with accent or an uppercase A with accent in your text, the method remains the same.

Apple has greatly simplified the method of inserting accented characters in text . To do this, the apple firm was simply inspired by its mobile operating system, namely iOS. Here is how to do it.

1. Hold down the key Majand then press and hold the letter you want. A menu will then appear.

2.  Next, press the number key corresponding to the capital letter with accent. For example, for an uppercase ” A ” with an accent, press the ”  ” key, for a ” ç “, press the ” 9 ” key, and so on.

  • À (uppercase accent): 
  • É (uppercase e with acute accent): 2
  • And (major accents): 7
  • Ç (c capital cedilla): 9

For the uppercase grave accent “U”, press the % key (still with the shift key locked).

Copy and paste all uppercase letters with accents into Notes

You can also copy and paste the different uppercase letters with accents in the Notes application, for example. So whenever you need an uppercase letter with an accent, you can just copy and paste it into your document. Just note that this method is not the easiest, nor the fastest … Prefer the first method explained in this article, you will waste less time.
