After asking a few native Spanish speakers, the common phrase that equivocates to the English "Exactly!" is "¡Exacto!" (in the sense of "That's right!", that is).

I've found the same thing. Not sure if DL accepts 'exacto,' but it should!

I've heard the same people use both phrases interchangeably.

But literally translated, I believe exacto = exact, while exactamente = exactly

Why do these words all have 'mente' after them?

It's like the "-ly" in English words. Surely, exactly, definitely, completely, etc.
