Notion Emoji Shortcut: All The Emojis You Need At Your Fingertips

Updated Date:

Emojis are a great way to express yourself and add a little fun to your Notion pages. But typing out long emoji names can be super time-consuming. That’s where a Notion emoji shortcut comes in

In this article, I’ll show you how to add all the emojis you need in just a few simple keystrokes.

What We Will Cover

What Is A Notion Emoji Shortcut?

When we talk about emoji shortcuts in Notion, we’re actually referring to two things

The first being keyboard shortcuts that allow you to quickly load up the emoji list

The second definition refers to direct shortcuts to specific emojis themselves.

You can quickly add them to your notes and pages without even looking and scrolling through Notion’s list of emojis.

Emoji List Keyboard Shortcuts: 2 Ways

So, how do you access these handy emoji lists? There are 2 ways to go about it.

You can either use your computer’s emoji list, or you can use the Notion emoji list that’s built into the platform.

Personally, I prefer using Notion’s native list because it’s easier to use.

1. Notion’s Emoji List

Notion Native Emoji List

Notion’s native emoji list is by far the most popular method for users to add emojis to their pages. 

To load up the list, all you need to do is  type “/emoji” into the text box on your Notion page

Then scroll and select the emoji that matches your mood from the list. It will be added immediately to your Notion page.

2. Computer’s Emoji List

Computer Emoji List

In addition to Notion’s native emoji list, you can also access your computer’s emoji list. 

  • On a Mac, press “ctrl” + “cmd” + “space”
  • On Windows, press the “windows key” + “;”.

This will bring up your computer’s emoji list, which may look slightly different than Notion’s.

Direct Emoji Shortcuts

When you know exactly which emoji you want, cut to the chase and use direct emoji shortcuts.

This saves you a ton of time sorting through a long list. 

Just type “:” followed by the emoji’s name. For example, typing “:watermelon” will bring up the watermelon emoji directly.

Now that you know how to add direct emoji shortcuts to your Notion pages, it’s smooth sailing from here.
