The alphabet n is written as n with tilde in the Spanish language. It is written in two forms: (Lowercase ñ and uppercase Ñ).
There is no specific key on PC and Mac keyboards to insert n with a squiggle, but you can use specific codes to insert it.
In Microsoft windows, Press and hold the ALT key and type 0241 for ñ and 0209 for Ñ on the numeric keyboard. Press the shift key with ~, release the keys, and type n.
For mac users, type n twice while holding the option key.

5 Ways to Insert/Type Tilde n in Word and Excel:
- Symbol Library
- Autocorrect Method
- Alt Code
- Keyboard Shortcuts
- CHAR Formula in Excel
STEP 1: SYMBOL LIBRARY
Microsoft Office has a symbol library with a majority of Greek and Latin characters including Russian backwards R. Additionally, you may insert this sign by utilizing the symbol library.
- Open the symbol library in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
- Look for the n with a squiggle and choose it. You can type Unicode 00D1/00F1 code in the character box if you can’t find it.
STEP 2: AUTOCORRECT METHOD
The autocorrect method is the quickest solution to enter any character in Microsoft Word. It can be manually customized in Word.
- Use the insert option at the top of the page to get to the symbol library.
- Locate the Spanish n, then choose it. Click the autocorrect option now.
- Enter “ntilde” in the Replace box, then click “add” and “save.”
- The keyboard will automatically change “ntilde” to “ñ.”
This approach can be used with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
STEP 3: ALT CODE
Alt code can be used to insert n with a Spanish accent using a numeric keyboard.
Hold down the Alt key while typing 241/209.
Check that you’re using a separate keyboard or that your keyboard has separate numeric keys. You can use a laptop to enable a numeric keyboard by pressing Fn and Numlock.
|Alt + 241 = ñ |
Alt + 209 = Ñ
STEP 4: KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS
If you don’t have a numeric keyboard, it’s simple to type a vertical bar in Microsoft Word because this method works on both numeric and simple keyboards.
Open Microsoft Word and type 00D1/00F1 while holding down the Alt and X keys.
This shortcode will be replaced with Ñ/ñ.
|00D1 + Alt-X = Ñ |
00F1 + Alt-X = ñ
STEP 5: CHAR FORMULA IN EXCEL

- Click on any cell where you want to type ñ/ Ñ.
