Keyboard Shortcut to Insert Briefcase Emojis in Outlook Email

In our previous articles, we’ve delved into various shortcuts for using emojis, and similarly, inserting the briefcase emoji can be achieved through several keyboard shortcuts.

Let’s explore these methods one by one.

  • Emoji Picker
  • Unicode
  • Copy and Paste
  • Using Online Pictures
  • Icons Option

Emoji Picker with Hotkeys in Outlook Emails

The hotkeys ‘Windows key + period (.)‘ and ‘Windows key + semicolon (;)‘ open the emoji picker, allowing you to easily insert any emoji or symbol into your Outlook email.

  • When you use any of the shortcut keys, you’ll be redirected to the Emoji Picker dialog box, which contains numeric emojis, images, and GIFs.
  • Enter “briefcase” to display options, including Emojis and GIFs. Select the one you like to insert.

The only problem is there is only one briefcase emoji avaible under this option.

ATL X Code to Insert Briefcase Emojis Symbol

The term “ATL X code” generally refers to a method for entering Unicode characters in Windows environments, including Microsoft Outlook.

To insert the briefcase emoji (or any other symbol) using its Unicode character code, you would typically follow these steps:

Type 1F4BC from your keyboard, then press Alt + X

It’s crucial to position your cursor right after the code ‘1F4BC‘ and then press ALT + X. If the cursor is left in the middle or at the beginning of the code, the briefcase emoji will not be inserted correctly.
