Use Emoji In Folder Names

This is one of those tips where if you are 20 or younger it is probably obvious, but if you are older it may have never occurred to you. You can use Emoji symbols in folder names on both OS X and iOS. With iOS it is easy to switch keyboards while typing an app folder name. With OS X you need to use the Character Viewer or copy and paste an emoji from a document. Either way, it can help your folders stand out and make them easier to find.

    Well I’m not 20 or younger so that hadn’t occurred to me! 👍🏻 I’m actually old enough to remember when Mac OS allowed you to change the colour and images on folders too. That was really helpful and I want it back.

    And worth remembering the Mac OS shortcut, ⌃+⌘+Space, to bring up special keyboard options.

    Thanks in advance

      On Mac you don’t switch keyboards, but use the method jasper describes above. On iOS, tap the button near the bottom left of the keyboard with the smiling face.
