    Here's yet another way: in your PC or laptop, go down to the little white field, far lower left side, that usually says 'type here to search' (or it's sometimes just blank), the 'start window' in other words. Type in the two words there: character map . And click for that.  A new pop-up window will come up on the screen showing almost every character of every alphabet, and lots of other symbols. The German ones for those letters will be near the top of the new pop-up window: not much searching required. You know how to use the copy and save functions already, so just fill the new field with the characters you want, then ctrl + v to put them in the right place  in your text.

    That depends on the language-setting you are using.

    In "english, US, international"  you simply push the quotation mark button and then the letter: ä, ë, ö, ü  If you want the capital, you push "shift" while pushing the letter

    BTW Dutch, or at least standard-dutch, uses about as little umlauts as English. It does use diaraeses (trema's). In typing, they look like umlauts, but don't change the sound of the vowel. They indicate that the vowel has to be pronounced separate from the previous one, as both are not part of a diphtong.

    There are various complicated ways but the simplest is to google a word  with an umlaut (without the umlaut, of course). The umlaut will turn up in some of the results. I just did this and got "Das Mädchen ist dünn und schön." What you can then do is copy those letters and save them in a document. In fact, here they are ä ü ö - copy and save them and you will have them forever.

    Go look up "alt symbols". If your keyboard has the alt button and number pad, you can plug in the codes to get umlaut vowels.

    In a Word document?  Use the "insert symbol" function.  But you know, other than in "heavy metal" groups, letters with umlauts sound distinctly different from words that dont. In German,wedish, Dutch, and Norwegian
