    Shortcut to emojis on physical keyboard?


    Hello,

    Is there a shortcut to the Windows 10 emojis on a physical keyboard? I'm using a Surface 3. I read that Win + . or Win + ; worked but it doesn't for me.

    Hi and Welcome to TenForums!

    Yes, the Windows Key + Period does bring up the emoji shortcut. The catch if you have to be in an application that supports it. Like Word, Outlook, or Notepad.

    (Didn't know you could change the skin tone on some emoji's!)
