This has been bugging me for a while. While I see the exclamation point in the exclamation/comma key, there is no way to make that key type the exclamation point. What I am able to do with the key is to type comma and single quote with the key.

What am I missing? How can I make exclamation/comma key to type exclamation point.

Press ⇧,

Press the shift key, then press the , comma key, which will insert a !.

This also works for the question mark above the .

  • Works. Way the keyboard remembers the pressed state of shift key was confusing. If I delete character and backtracks and if shift is active in that state, it will not trigger the exclamation point. I have to turn off shift, and press again for this combo to work. – Jithin Feb 7 '14 at 16:12
  • And now you should use both hands to type exclamation or question mark, awesome Apple, nice job :D – Sonique Jun 8 '18 at 6:57
