Use Emojis Anywhere You Like In Windows


Are you a Windows user and you want to use emojis anywhere you like on your system?
If yes, then you're in the right place. 😎

Yes, it's true that you can use emojis in your Windows system anywhere you like. It can be a text file, a java or python code or a markdown file or the comment section of any tweet or blogs or a YouTube video.

Most important thing is that you don't need any external software or extension to be installed on your computer.
