Tip of the Week: Touch Keyboard Capabilities in All Windows 10 Devices

Tip of the Week: Touch Keyboard Capabilities in All Windows 10 Devices

Special text characters are an integral part of typing. For the most part, however, they are not something that your normal, run-of-the-mill keyboard or laptop keypad is able to access easily. Luckily, for Windows 10 users, there is a shortcut that allows you to access all sorts of special characters.

Special text characters, like emojis, have become a part of the way that we communicate through text. While these expressive characters might not be something that businesses would include in formal content or some types of communications, even modern business correspondences call for the occasional smiley face.

Other special characters, like symbols of foreign currency or fractions, are even more commonly used in business but are still tricky to create using a traditional keyboard.
