Tip of the Week: The Windows 10 Touch Keyboard Offers Considerable Utility


Digital communication has changed a lot over the years. Nowadays, special characters are commonplace for the modern person to communicate with. The special characters that are most frequently used are called emojis. They have become a staple in mobile communications, even among professionals. After all, who hasn’t responded to a message with an emoji thumbs up or a smiley face?

There are more special characters too, such as currency symbols, fractions, and more that enhance people’s ability to communicate. The problem is, that these symbols and emoticons aren’t located on the traditional keyboard. So Microsoft has added some pretty dynamic functionality into their Windows 10 operating system’s touch keyboard.
