How do you type an upside down exclamation point on a laptop?
Alt + 168 = ¿ Alt + 0161 = ¡ This works on my keyboard. Sally, there is no number pad on a laptop. The two keys to the left of the back space key on the top row are the ones you want. Hold down the shift key and the first one to the left is the upside down question mark.
For the ñ, hold down the Option key while you type the n; release and type n again. To place the diaeresis over the u, hold down the Option key while pressing the u key; release and type u again. The inverted punctuation marks are achieved as follows: ¡ = Opt + 1.
- If you have, just use whatever option that keyboard gives you to access the built-in iPhone keyboard. To see the available accents and diacritical symbols, simply tap and hold on the letter or punctuation mark you want to add the accent to. A row of accented versions of the letter will pop up.

There you will find any Spanish letter you might need, uppercase or lowercase. Change "Latin" to "Punctuation" to find the upside-down question mark and exclamation point.

- The symbol for “&” comes from combination of letters in the Latin for “and”, “et”. The name for the symbol, “ampersand”, didn't commonly come into use until the 19th century, from “and per se and”, meaning more or less: “and [the symbol] by itself is and”.
- Officially, this symbol is called commercial at. Unofficially, most people seem to refer to it as the at sign or just at. Recently, there has also been a movement to call it the atmark. There are also numerous nicknames for it, including snail, curl, strudel, whorl, and whirlpool.
- The ampersand is a visual representation of the phrase “and, per se and.” It is a graphic representation of the Latin “et,” which translates to “and.” That definition is how the ampersand is most commonly used today — as an inclusionary symbol meaning “and.”
