How to find special characters on your Windows. Unusual characters how to find.

Hi Thanks for looking!

Maybe this is a very simple thing, but one of my friends asked me this other day, and I couldn't reply instantly. This is how to find special characters like ? ??? æ and tens of others.

Go to

Start--->All Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools---> Character Map
Click on it and you have loads of special characters to choose from.Please note that at the bottom of this window you can find a keyboard short-cut to certain character.

I hope this helps someone.

Hi! May I ask help? When I'm using skype, the


do you have the user manual that came with your laptop this should show you were the camera enable key is

the manual may even be allready installed in your documents or programs its worth a look

i dont know what make your laptop is but if you go to the official website of the laptop eg

if a acer type in your browser www.acer.com if hp www.hp.com if toshiba
www.toshiba.com etc etc

then search your model and look for the manual and download it saving it to your desktop or documents for future use but you will need adobe reader installed to be able to read it
you can get that from www.adobe.com its a free download but most modern laptops comes with it pre installed

Good day, I cannot access my TrekStor external hard drive. Is there a way I can get it to work without formatting it and losing the data? I am running Windows 7. Kind Regards, Dries

Hi AHPretorius:
Do you have access to a Windows XP machine that you can try to use the drive with? Maybe a friend's computer? I would try using it with such a system and run chkdsk on the drive to make sure that the partition is healthy; otherwise, you might want to buy the DiskInternals program that may be able to help you revive the partition.
Please feel free to ask follow-up questions in a reply here.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year

Try looking unde sent items and see if you have some of your friends over there to whom you sent the emails latest.

Nowadays, the yahoo mail is updating its content and thus for 2-3 days you wouldn't be able to maybe not able to view some of your emails and their attachments.

Please ask for further clarifications.
