The suggestion "ctrl+', then press e" isn't working for me. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you

You have to press all at once Ctrl+’+e

Ctrl+1+: will not give you anything Sherkleton. You didn't mean Ctrl+Shft+: did you? This will only work on letters that use that accent (like u and o). "ctrl+', then press e" will not work in Excel, Elizabeth. try it in Word or Outlook. You may find that it won't work in a font that doesn't have the e' character and may not work in "plain font" situations.
