In the computer world, a kaomoji is a group of text symbols that look like faces or expressions. The word kaomoji comes from Japan, and Kao 顔 means face, and Moji 文字 means character or text. Along with typing emoji and special characters in Windows 10, you can also type kaomoji. You can access Kaomoji in Windows 10 via the keyboard, mouse (or touchscreen). Here’s how to type kaomoji in Windows 10:
