Add a sticker or emoji in OneNote for Windows 10

You can insert graphical stickers or emoji in your notes to add emphasis or appeal.

Insert stickers

To add a sticker to your notes, do the following:

  1. On any page, click where you want to add a sticker.

  2. On the Insert tab, click Stickers.

  3. In the Stickers pane that opens, click the sticker you want to insert.

    If you don’t see the sticker you want, select a different category icon on the left side of the Stickers pane.

Customize stickers

You can modify an inserted sticker by doing any of the following:

  • To move a sticker to a different location on your page, position the mouse pointer over the sticker until you see a cross-cursor icon, and then click and drag the sticker to the new location.

  • To change a sticker’s size, click and drag one of the sizing handles in its corners. (On a tablet, you can tap and then pinch or stretch the sticker with two fingers.)

  • To rotate or flip a sticker, click to select it, and then click the Picture tab on the ribbon to reveal the flip and rotation commands.

  • To set a sticker as a background image so that you can type over it, click to select the sticker, click the Picture tab, and then click Set Picture as Background.

Insert emoji

To add one or more emoji to text in your notes, do the following:

  1. On any page, click where you want to add emoji.

  2. On your keyboard, press the Start button + Period ( . ) to open the emoji panel.

  3. To find and insert emoji, do any of the following:

    • At the bottom of the emoji panel, click a category icon (for example, Smiley faces and animals, People, Celebrations and objects, and so on), to view all available emoji in that category, and then click the emoji you want to insert.

    • To quickly find emoji without using the categories, start typing the name of an emoji (for example, type “party”) to see all available emoji fitting that description, and then click the emoji you want to insert.

Tip: You can insert multiple emoji while in the emoji panel. To close the panel, press Esc. If you want to remove any emoji from your notes, click to place the cursor immediately after it, and then press the Backspace key on your keyboard.
