Emojis are anything but new. Most virtual keyboards include support for emojis, but I bet you didn’t know Windows 10 has one. No, I’m not talking about the touchscreen keyboard, but the dedicated emoji keyboard.

How to Use the Windows 10 Emoji Keyboard

  1. Click in an input field or text document.
  2. Press one of the two combinations: WIN + “.” or WIN + “;”.
  3. Click on the emoji you want to use (like this one 😊).
  4. Alternatively, you can select from two additional tabs, one with kaomojis (Japanese emoticons), and one with special symbols (this one has multiple tabs included at the bottom).

Also, read about the Windows 11 emoji panel, it has some novelties you may be interested in.
