    I just installed the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Windows 10 version 1709) and just learned about the new emoji picker. I have all of my language settings set to U.S. English, so the emoji menu/picker works for me. I tested it by opening the Windows 10 Mail app and sending myself an email containing emoji from the emoji menu. Then, I opened Chrome, and went to mail.google.com (where I am logged into my Google account), opened that same email, and the emoji appear differently there!
    As I understand it, emoji appear differently on different platforms, and I bet that wherever Google renders the emoji (instead of Microsoft), it'll render it like it does on Android. As for how Apple renders emoji, I deleted Apple's email app from my iPhone and replaced it with Outlook, so I can't look to see if Apple's email app renders emoji differently than how Microsoft renders it.
    In addition, I suppose that various apps and services--Facebook, Twitter, etc.--might all render emoji differently.
    I thought I'd try putting some emoji from the Fall Creators Update emoji menu here for testing purposes.

    Iโ€™ve compared how a few of the emoji appear in the Windows 10 Mail app with how they appear in Tapatalk on my iPhone, and they are slightly different.

    Apparently, I can even use emoji in Notepad files, although if I save the files with ANSI encoding, the Unicode will be lost. Still, it seems that emoji are just characters, just like the letters a-z and the numbers 0-9 are characters. Furthermore, emoji are rendered differently by different software and services, kinda like how alphanumeric characters can be rendered differently by different software and services (although with alphanumeric characters, it depends on what font is used).

    Since these emoji are only unlocked for US users (why on earth???) there is quite a significance. Just remember that such file names are likely to cause issue if you pass those files on to most people as most copies of W10 are not compatible with them.
