Emojis in File Names on macOS
Unicode, while essential, never excited me much since I had little use for it in everyday work. But what it does allow is for Emojis to be used in filenames.
Emojis are extremely popular, so I thought this might appeal to some readers. And some of them might be useful as distinct visuals for organizing file.
An interesting idea is how Emojis or something like it could bring a more useful and friendly view to computers. For example, in some cases I’d rather have the Emoji be the entire icon and the file name simultaneously—used sparingly for making visually distinctive items stand out.
The files below are all real file names, with Emojis. Pronouncing them is another matter, and I cannot seem to get rid of the file extensions (even with the Finder preference off).
