How to Type Kaomoji Emoticons in Windows 10?

Emoji is text character displayed as a picture. Unicode Consortium standardizes the character representation with the objective of typing characters on all devices. This help us to use emoji everywhere on documents, emails and chat conversations. Though individual applications can adapt the modifications, Unicode highly helps to standardize emoji symbols.

Emoji Vs Kaomoji

In our earlier article, we have explained the difference between emoticon and emoji. Before the popularity of emoji, people used emoticons to make expressions using text characters. Smileys, Lenny Face, Kaomoji are some of the earlier forms of emoticons used for expressing symbols. Unlike emoji symbol, which is a single character , kaomoji is the combination of text characters to represent an expression. kaomoji are first used by Japanese and later widely adopted by all. This is another way you can use keyboard keys to type or make symbols by combining different Unicode characters.

Problems in Typing Kaomoji Symbols

As mentioned, you need the combination of keys to make kaomoji expressions. For example, below are the lenny face kaomoji using special characters.

Lenny Face Variation

Though facial expressions are cute, the problem is that you can’t type all special characters using the standard keyboard keys. Here comes the use of alt code shortcuts that you can use one of the alt key and decimal / hexadecimal code to type special characters. Unfortunately, alt code shortcuts need numeric pad on your keyboard to work and you can’t use the number keys on top row of your keyboard. Alt codes also widely vary on fonts, applications and operating systems making it difficult to make symbols.
