How to Turn On or Off Close Emoji Panel Automatically in Windows 10


Emoji are ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and Web pages. Emoji are used much like emoticons and exist in various genres, including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, and animals.

Starting with Windows 10 build 16215, a new Emoji Panel has been added to make it easier entering emoji on your hardware keyboard.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17046, Microsoft adjusted the design of the Emoji Panel so that after opening up the panel by pressing hotkey Windows logo key + “.” or “;”, you could browse, search and then select more than one emoji. The panel won’t go away until you click/tap on the close button or press “Esc” key.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17063, Microsoft added a “Don’t close panel automatically after an emoji has been entered” setting so that you can decide which behavior is best for you.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off closing the Emoji Panel automatically after an emoji has been entered for your account in Windows 10.


 CONTENTS:

  • Option One: Turn On or Off “Don’t close panel automatically after an emoji has been entered” in Settings
