    How do I type an accented letter E? I know I've done it before, I just don't remember how.

    Hold down Option, and "e", release, then hit "e" again alone.

    Assuming you want an acute accent...
    A grave accent is Opt+` followed by the letter, a circumflex is Opt+i, and a diaresis is Opt+u.
