Keyboard Shortcuts to Make Fire Emoji
Use the below keyboard shortcuts in Windows to male fire emoji symbol in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and other applications.
|Symbol||Fire emoji 🔥|
|Windows shortcut||Alt + 128293|
|Word Shortcut||1F525 Alt + X|
Let us explain how to use the above keyboard shortcuts and other ways to include fire emoji including MacBook.
Using Alt Code Shortcuts in Windows
Each emoji symbol has a unique code point in Unicode. Fire emoji is available under sky & weather category and has the code point as U+1F525. You can convert this hexadecimal code into a decimal code and use with alt key. The decimal equivalent of 1F525 is 128293, therefore alt + 128293 will make fire emoji 🔥.
Remember, you should turn on the number lock and use separate number pad to type the decimal code. Using regular number keys on the top row (below function keys) of your keyboard will not work with alt keys.
Shortcut for Microsoft Word in Windows
Most of the modern laptops do not have a separate number pad. Some models have numbers inside the regular keys, which is also not a standard design. In this case you can use the hexadecimal code directly with alt and X keys on your keyboard. Type the code 1F525, now press alt and x keys together to convert the code into fire emoji symbol 🔥.
This method will work only in Microsoft Word documents in Windows computers.
Using Emoji Panel in Windows
If keyboard shortcuts do not work, then press “Win Logo + Dot” key. This will open the emoji panel pop-up. Type “fire” to filter all fire related emoji symbols. Find and click on fire emoji to insert on your document.

Unfortunately, Word and most other applications will not support these surrogate codes. For example, man firefighter emoji will display in Word as multiple symbols. This is basically a person and fire engine emoji with a color skin tone. However, it will work properly in other social media applications like Facebook Messenger and Twitter.

So, five digits fire emoji code points will not work in Mac with keyboard shortcuts. In order to overcome this issue, similar to Windows computer, Mac also offers a emoji panel called Character Viewer.
Press “Control + Command + Space” keys to open Character Viewer. You can use the search box to filter and insert fire emoji and other related emoji symbols. This will work on Pages, Keynote, Numbers and all other applications in Mac.
