Emojis play an important role in how we communicate emotions, situations, or ideas, and even though virtually every platform has access to this feature, Windows 11 ships with a new (2D) emoji system using a modern design. In this guide, you will learn the easy steps to insert emojis in documents, text files, emails, and social media posts on Windows 11.

Insert emojis on Windows 11

To insert an emoji on Windows 11, use these steps: Once you complete the steps, the emoji will appear in the document, and as you use them, the most frequently used will appear in the “most recently used” tab to make it even easier to select them the next time.

If you use the virtual keyboard, you can access the emojis panel by clicking the button in the top-left corner of the keyboard. The ability to change the skin tone for emoji groups (family members, couples with hearts, kissing, and people holding hands) is expected to be available with the release of Windows 11 22H2.
