moderated help with a key stroke


E.M. Kirtley
 

For some reason I’m unable to recall the key stroke for bringing up the list of emojis.  Could someone please refresh my memory?

Presuming we're talking Windows 10 or 11, Windows Key + Period will do it.  There's also a second alternative which I've forgotten since I don't use it.

Typically, after I hit the above shortcut, I immediate begin typing the name of the emoji I'm hunting, or part of the name.  It makes reviewing the results a far less tedious experience.

Hi E. M.
I thought I'd use your message to point out to everyone, that this subject could have been better.
Why is that important?
When people search the web for a subject like
emoji list
the answer shown on this list may not ever come up.
Yep, when we do web searches, we come across eMail list messages.
So your subject could have been worse, like I have seen some like:
need help
and although your subject wasn't that vague, it could have been better.
So here's what folks should do when starting a thread,
What is the question you would ask to get the answer you are looking for?
And part of that question would make a good subject, and you can elaborate on your question in the message body.
I'm not trying to be condescending, just help folks make better contributions to the list.

And you're not being condescending, you're being helpful.

I'm not moderator here, but am elsewhere, and one of the things we (not just me) insist upon is descriptive topic titles.  And I hasten to add that this is very, very far from "the worst offender."  Getting topics like, "Help!," is absolutely not helpful, and many members will just delete such because it gives them absolutely no idea whatsoever what's being asked about.

This topic title at least narrowed the class of question.  But you are absolutely correct that a title like, "What's the Keyboard Shortcut for the Emoji keyboard?," or, "Emoji Keyboard Shortcut," zeroes in on precisely what information is about to be asked about.

Agreed, I can't begin to count the number of messages I've read that I would have just deleted because I didn't know the answer or I wasn't interested. Good message subjects could save each of us a lot of time.

The keystrokes to open the emoji panel are, Windows key + period, or,  , Windows key + semicolon.
