You can hold down ALT, type a number and release alt. For instance, to type an "a acute", á, press alt, type the numbers 0 2 2 5 and let go. Here's a chart: https://sites.psu.edu/symbolcodes/windows/codealt/
If you have to type a particular letter regularly, you will likely get used to that sequence. For instance, I've used the British pound symbol a few times, and remember that it is alt 1 5 6: £.
In some cases, you might find creating a reference file you can quickly access to pull up commonly used symbols. EG if you work with a lot of different currencies, or music symbols.
If you need to type the letters from a particular language regularly, then you can set Windows up to use the keyboard for that language in Windows Language settings, then you can switch between them with WINDOWS+spacebar.
