Sometimes, when writing text, in Windows 10, special characters are needed (symbols: Ω, ♛, 💻, 🖧, ➤, etc.). For example, some languages may use characters that are not included in the currently selected keyboard language. In this case, the characters can be integrated into the document using a special character integration option called “Character Map.” This can be quite inconvenient and time-consuming, especially with longer texts. It is much easier to change the keyboard language.
