    If you hit the windows key + semicolon a menu will pop up with a variety of emojis similar to a smartphone menu. Click the emojis you want, then exit the menu, and it will be added to your message.

    I've been looking for this for [b]years[/b].
    Sometimes the Outlook autocorrect library had the smileys in it, sometimes it didn't, and I couldn't figure out how to add them manually to the library without fiddling about with formatting or manual input.
    I don't know how I didn't find this page sooner, I've done way over 20 google searches in this topic.

    Thanks!
