Re: Community notification emails have stopped.

I don't think you have the key in Win 7. Here's what it looks like:

It's your Start Menu key.  It's also called the Windows key.

I had totally forgotten what it was called in Win 7. Smiley Happy

Thanks guys.

In Win 7 when I do Win + it starts Magniifier

Tried that before I asked.

I do have a program called CharacterMap in system tools

Edit:  It looks like what would be in place of a curse word.  Smiley Tongue 

 

Actually, come to think of it, I don't think it works with Windows 7 anyway.  I didn't know this until just looking it up.  Sorry. 

 

BTW, Win + . means pressing and holding the Windows key, then pressing the period key.  The + means and in this case.  (Win + .)

 

This is what it brings up in Windows 10...

(Win + .) Still launches Magnifier  with or without the period.

It sounds like you're pressing the Win key and the Plus sign key (+).  Those two together are the shortcut for the magnifier.  

 

Again though, I believe this emoji shortcut (Win key and period key) is a Windows 10 only feature.

Well Yea!  thats what I have been doing all along. My mistake.

 

But thats what you posted all along   Win + .

Win and + and .    would tell me something different   just like Alt and 234 would produce  Ω

Alt and 43  would produce +

Ive been using Alt+ characters for years even back in 98.

I think that Win Key has been on every keyboard since 95.

(thats Win98 and Win95 for all you youngsters.)

We didnt have smileys and emojis back then and I still not interested in them. Cat Sad

I did, as that's how "Win AND period" is written out when giving key instructions.  When the plus sign is one that needs to be pressed, it's normally in parentheses, like 'Win + (+)', meaning 'Win AND the plus sign', which brings up the magnifier.  

 

I should have spelled it out in the first place.  My apologies.
