    Find symbols/special characters in Windows 10 !!!


    Windows 10 lets us search for emojis by bringing the Emoji panel (WIN + .) and typing the emoji name.

    But why doesn’t it let us search for symbols?

    It has a Symbols panel and zillions of special characters in it. But I never manage to find the symbol I'm looking for whenever I need one. Then I go to Google and search for the symbol I'm looking for and copy it from there.

    The Symbols panel doesn't seem useful to me without search functionality. What do you think? I mean, come on. It’s 2020. A simple feature like that can't be too much to ask for.
