If you are wanting to know how to type the letters such as á, é, í, ó, ú, ñ, ¡, ¿, then the below list might help you.

First turn on your "num lock" keyboard option.  Then press and hold the left ALT key (on my laptop I have to hold down both the left ALT and the blue Fn keys) while you press the following numerical sequences, then release for the letter to appear. The '+' simply means press and hold the ALT key while typing the following numerical sequence.

ALT + 160 = á
ALT + 130 = é
ALT + 161 = í
ALT + 162 = ó
ALT + 163 = ú
ALT + 164 = ñ
ALT + 144 = É
ALT + 165 = Ñ
ALT + 173 = ¡
ALT + 168 = ¿
ALT + 166 = ª
ALT + 167 = º

Or with Spanish keys Activated  ú
[ then a = á
[ then e = é
[ then i = í
[ then o = ó

et cetera. ú
= becomes ¿
The colon and semicolon key becomes ñ and Ñ respectively.
