One thing that you can do easily in a smartphone but not so obvious in a desktop computer is to quickly type an emoji character in your text. By memorizing these keyboard shortcuts, you can do the same, whether it’s on a Mac or a Windows system.
On a mac, press all these keys: ⌃ CTRL + ⌘ Command + spacebar.
Either of these combinations will work on Windows 10 or later:
- Windows + . (Period)
- Windows + ; (Semicolon)
That’s all there is to it.
Notice that the emoji will be rendered a bit differently for each OS, but that should not be a problem.
Once you know this trick, soon enough you’ll be more tempted to using it more in your notes or blog. 🍻
