Windows users: at last you have a great emoji picker, built right into your system.

To access the emoji picker interface, press either of the following two shortcut combinations:

  • Windows Key + Period / Full Stop (.)
  • Windows Key + Semicolon (;)

Typing either of these keyboard shortcuts will bring up an inline emoji picker, complete with search field.

Most people by now should have the update required for this emoji keyboard.  If you find that this doesn’t work you may need to update your Windows 10.
