Hi, Maria. All you have to do is:


1. Go to the document or webpage into which you want to paste the emoji.

2. Make sure you are actually in the edit field.

3. Open the emoji panel with WinKey plus period or semicolon.

4. Find the emoji you want to paste into the edit field.

5. Press the ENTER key.


Pressing the ENTER key while an emoji is selected will paste the emoji into the document or edit field.

Thanks, David.  Now all I need is to know how to use them.  Some people are really good with them.  I can open them on the desktop, but not on the m.facebook page, where I might want to play with them.  Any place that teaches that sort of foolish stuff?

Hi, Maria.

Pressing the Windows key along with either the period or the semicolon key invokes the emoji panel, at least with Windows 10 build 1909. I don't understand why Microsoft uses both key combinations.

In the event that someone is using Leasey, which is a third party piece of software to add functionality to JAWS, you can press the Leasey key followed by shift-ctrl-E which brings up an easy to navigate list of emoji characters.

What is the key combo to bring up the list of emojis?  Thanks.
