How to get a standard (non-phonetic) Russian keyboard to map “/” and “?” to “.” and “,” or otherwise allow their entry


I have Russian/English stickers on top of the keyboard, which in the Russian layout works for almost every key I have tried, but not the "?" and "/" key, which in the Russian layout should be "." and ",". As a result, I do not know (apart from switching to the U.S. keyboard to enter an appropriate keystroke) how to give a "," or "."

How, from the Russian keyboard, can/should I enter a "," or "."?

Best Answer

To have your Russian layout conform to what you are used to, go to system preferences > keyboard > input sources and use the + and - buttons to replace "Russian" by "Russian PC". The latter puts period/comma at the bottom right corner.
