    I remember being able to find special characters, such as Ω and σ, in the emoji panel. Now I don't know whether it's due to an update, but I can't find them there.


    Since I use the Chinese keyboard also, I have no problem finding these when I press Ctrl + Shift + E.


    Please help.

    :)

    Entering Emoji on Hardware Keyboard with Emoji Panel in Windows 10


    @Brink

    Hi
    I tried your suggested test and nothing happens.
    The emoji panel did not open.*Sad

    Note:
    This was also occurring prior to the latest August 14, 2018 - KB4343909 (OS Build 17134.228) update.

    Win10 Emoji Panel Won't Open


    Hi All,
    I also posted this same question here...
    Entering Emoji on Hardware Keyboard with Emoji Panel in Windows 10

    Anyway,

    I'm running the latest version of win 10 and the emoji panel will not open,
    using either Win + period, or Win + semicolon key's.

    I've done a system file check and no integrity violations were found.

    Is there a know service, that needs to be turned on/running for this to work?
    Or maybe there's a setting I've overlooked, or perhaps turned off?

    Any suggestion on how to correct this issue, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    As a side note:
    The emoji panel use to open as intended, but now it doesn't.
    It also did not function, prior to the latest August 14, 2018 - KB4343909 (OS Build 17134.228) update.

    Insert emoji/special characters anywhere

    so, I have to admit it. On OSX there's a hotkey which makes a popup appear that has all kinds of specials characters and emoji the user can instantly insert into any text-ish field. I'm not familiar with OSX, but I know this one by accident.

    Can Windows 10 please have something like that as well?

    The touch keybaord isn't really suitable for this, for four reasons:

    1) It's too far away from a text field

    2) It's too touch-optimized, making it feel silly to operate with a mouse

    3) Pressing any physical key makes it dissapear

    4) It doesn't contain very many special characters at all, it's only "good" for emoji

    So, press some kind of hotkey, like Win+something, and then a small popup appears at the caret position, which may or may not be similar to charmap. But without charmap's hassle of having to dig through *everything* and copypasting it.
