Emojis? as folder, file, and disk names in Windows 10

In Windows 10, you can use Emojis (?) To name files or folders. Below we will see how you can give different names to files, folders, or even disks that you have on your system, with the built-in Emoji Panel feature.


Emojis are smiling icons and ideograms that are used by various applications, mainly by chat programs and instant messaging.

Modern smileys are "Emojis", and Unicode characters or sometimes images are used to display them. They are supported by many applications on mobile platforms as well as Windows Desktop applications.

Support for color emoji is rare, unless the application supports the DirectWrite feature. Android, iOS, and Windows operating system from Windows 8 onwards can deliver emojis through Unicode fonts.

From Windows 10 build 16215 and then, Microsoft has simplified the process of importing and finding emoji using a natural keyboard for the icons.

Before proceeding, be aware that there are some special characters that you can not use in file or folder names. So you should avoid using the following special characters: `~ @ # $% ^ & () = + [] {} | ; :, '“. <> /?.

To use Emojis as folder and file names in Windows 10, do the following.

Open File Explorer and select that you want to rename. It can be a file, a folder, or a drive.
Press F2 or select Rename with right click to edit the name of the file or folder you want.

When renaming, press the two keys together [icon name = ”windows” class = ”” unprefixed_class = ””] +. (Dot) or [icon name = ”windows” class = ”” unprefixed_class = ””] +; (question mark) to open the Emoji panel.
Select the emoji you want.

You can select more than one if you want. Press Enter to confirm the change and close the file name editor.


It will be hard to access emoji files and folders in names through the command line. By default, the Windows 10 Command Command application can not properly perform emojis.

However, you can access it using the auto-fill name feature. You can press Tab repeatedly until you see the file name you need.
