When I press Win + . and start typing I get (shown is MS Teams, but same happens in other applications also):

error message when searching emoji

The Windows display language is set to English

windows language settings

I have tried restarting the laptop per this other question, but no luck: Windows 10 1809 cannot search for emoji

  • Suspect the problem is your language pack doesn’t contain emoji icons. Switch to a different language pack like English (United States) – Ramhound Mar 26 at 12:46
  • @Ramhound I do see the emojis when not searching, and can scroll through and use them also. It's just search that is broken. Would have expected all emoji use to fail if pack does not contain emojis?? – Toby Mar 26 at 19:52
  • Search is handled by Cortana which is only supported with certain languages (and regions). Which is the reason I suggested switching languages for the display language as a simple test. – Ramhound Mar 26 at 21:40
