How to Put an Upside Down Exclamation Point Into Microsoft Word

You can easily access the normal, upright exclamation point on a standard keyboard: You simply press "Shift" and "1." Inserting an upside-down exclamation point takes a bit more effort, even though the mark is required at the beginning of an exclamatory sentence in Spanish. To accommodate this need, Microsoft Word provides an inverted exclamation mark in the Symbols menu, which presents extra or nonstandard characters.
