How to Open and Use Character Map in Windows

You can use Character Map to view the characters that are available for a selected font. Character Map displays the following character sets:

  • Windows
  • DOS
  • Unicode

You can copy individual characters or a group of characters to the clipboard, and then paste them into any compatible program. Or, depending on the program you are using (such as WordPad), you can even copy characters by dragging them from Character Map directly into an open document.

You can use Character Map to search for characters by viewing the Unicode character maps that are associated with each font. Select the character in the font you select to display the Unicode identifier. If you know the Unicode equivalent of the character that you want to insert, you can also insert a special character directly into a document without using Character Map.

This tutorial will show you how to open and use Character Map to copy individual characters or a group of characters to the clipboard in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
