In this, my last post honoring World Emoji Day (promise), I showcase the emojis available with Windows Touch Keyboard.
The on-screen keyboard (aka, Touch Keyboard), available to Windows desktop since versions 8, includes emoji characters similar to those used on iPhones and iPads.
Accessing Emojis Using Windows Touch Keyboard
- In Desktop mode, RIGHT+CLICK on the taskbar, point to Toolbars and select Touch Keyboard. The Touch Keyboard icon now appears on the Taskbar.
- Click (or tap, if using a tablet) the Touch Keyboard icon to display an onscreen keyboard.
- Click the emoji key to display emojis.
- Click the desired emoji. That emoji is inserted at the current cursor position.
Press ‘X‘ to close the Touch Keyboard when done.
