Yesterday my daughter was “helping” me in my home office (bedroom). While I tapped away on the keyboard with the laptop she was writing her memoirs using the Magic Keyboard.
Somehow she wound up with the Emoji options on the screen, and then they disappeared again. She tapped me on the shoulder and asked “How do we get the emoji’s back again”.
It turns out that you need to press
space and the emoji keyboard appears. Hooray!
