Add flair to your email with emojis

With Outlook, you can add all sorts of graphics and formatted text to your email messages. From tables to charts to icons to animated GIFs, you can create beautiful and compelling messages with just a few clicks. 

With Outlook running on Windows 10, you have an additional tool to make those email messages shine: emojis. 

Outlook for Microsoft 365 contains a small set of default emojis. You can insert an emoji from this default set by typing the text code for that emoji. For example, typing :-) inserts the smiley-face emoji. 

Windows 10, however, contains a much larger set of emojis. To access the Windows 10 emoji picker, press the Windows key and the period (.) key at the same time.

Use the Windows 10 emoji picker to insert an emoji.

To find an emoji, you can either scroll through the list, use the category icons at the bottom of the emoji picker, or type the word for the emoji you want. For example, typing the word present filters the available emoji for you. Then simply click the one you want to insert it into your email.

You can insert one or more emojis into your email message.
