I am wondering where I can find the font (or set of images) that Windows uses when you select an emoji from the Windows Key+. context menu to add to a sentence. Do they come from the default Segoe UI font or are they a separate font (or separate files)? One of my other Windows computers appears to have a corrupted emoji file as the majority of them appear as squares like this: , so I was hoping to copy the file from one PC to the other and then install it on the second PC.

  • Emoji support depends on some kernel support (this is true for other operating systems). Verify both machines are running the exact same version of Windows – Ramhound Jan 17 '20 at 21:56
  • @Ramhound I made sure to update both machines before this so I can guarantee that they are running the same version. – William V. Jan 17 '20 at 21:59

It's a separate font named "Segoe UI Emoji", found in Windows\Fonts\seguiemj.ttf.
