Windows has natively supported emoji since Windows 7 (emoji support was added as an update), and a native on-screen emoji keyboard was introduced in Windows 8 and 8.1. These native emojis are supported by Internet Explorer and Firefox, but are not currently supported by Chrome without installing an add-on.

To type emoji on windows, you have to enable the touch keyboard (if it's not already enabled). Here's how:

  • From your desktop, right-click on the Taskbar
  • In "Toolbars" select the "Touch Keyboard" option to enable the Touch Keyboard button
  • Click the new "Touch Keyboard" icon that is now in your system tray
  • From the on-screen keyboard, click the smiley face button next to the spacebar

Congratulations - you now have access to the emoji keyboard, which you can use to enter any emoji into your posts on Twitter, Facebook, or any other app.
