Click on "Character Map" to open the Character Map. Select different fonts in the dropdown menu to see the available characters for that font.

Click on "Accessories", then "System Tools".

Click "Start" and select "All Programs."

When you create a document, or use typography in a graphic design project, you are not limited to characters from your keyboard. Each font contains special characters and accented letters that are accessible either by entering the correct key combination, or by copying them from the table of characters included in Windows.
