Typing Warning Emoji Symbols in Windows PC
There are three ways you can type these warning emoji symbols in Windows PC.
1. Using Alt Code Shortcuts
Hold one of the alt key on your keyboard and type the numbers using number pad. For example, alt + 128245 will produce the no mobile phones emoji like 📵. If you do not have separate number pad on your keyboard, learn here on how to use alt codes in different keyboard layouts.
2. Alt + X Shortcuts in Microsoft Word
Microsoft Word in Windows PC will support the use of hexadecimal codes along with alt key. However, you have to type the code then press alt and X keys together. For example, 2620 and Alt + X will produce the skull and crossbones symbol like ☠.
3. Using Emoji Panel
If remembering the shortcuts is a difficult task for you then press “Win Logo + ;” keys in Windows 10 computers. This will open emoji panel where you can search and find the warning emoji symbols. You can either type the name of the symbol to filter or go to the particular category. Once inserted, you can easily find the symbol from the top favorites list.
Typing Warning Symbols in Mac
Similar to Windows, macOS allows you to insert warning emoji symbols in two ways.
1. Using Option Code Shortcuts in Mac
On Mac, you can find the alt keys with the name as option. You can use one of these option keys with hexadecimal numbers to type symbols. For example, press option key and then type 26D4 to make no entry symbol ⛔. However, you should first change the input source to Unicode Hex Input for this method to work.
2. Character Viewer
The problem with Mac is that it only supports 4 character hexadecimal codes with option code as a shortcut. As you can see in the above table, there are emojis having 5 character code which you can’t use in Mac. The alternate solution is to use Character Viewer app. Press, “Command + Control + Space” to open Character Viewer app. This is similar to Windows 10 emoji panel where you can search and find the warning emoji symbols. Either you can type the name of emoji in search box or go through the emoji section to find the result.
