Exploding Head 🤯 emoji in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

Insert the Exploding Head 🤯  emoji into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook.  Both in Office for Windows and Office for Mac.

How Exploding Head 🤯 emoji looks

Windows only has Exploding Head 🤯 in the Segoe UI Emoji font, either color or black.

To me the black version looks more like a bowl than a face.

Exploding Head 🤯 codes

These are the important code numbers or values you’ll need to enter the Exploding Head or 🤯

Decimal:  129327  Hex:   1F92F

Web:  🤯 or 🤯

(web codes aren’t used in Microsoft Office, we’ve included them for the sake of completeness.)

Word and Outlook

The Exploding Head 🤯  sign does NOT have an inbuilt shortcut in Word.

Use the standard Word Alt + X symbol shortcut 1F92F  then Alt + X

Once in a document you can copy it to AutoCorrect and make your own shortcut.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

Insert | Symbols | Symbol and find for the Exploding Head symbol using the Hex code 1F92F


In Windows there are several shortcuts to enter the Exploding Head 🤯  character into any program, but they use a numeric keypad, not the number row above the letters.

Alt + 129327  

Windows 11/10 Emoji Panel

The Windows 10 Emoji Panel has the Exploding Head 🤯  character. Use Win + . (period/fullstop) to open the panel and search for ‘exploding’ or just ‘explod’ is enough

See Emoji Panel is part of Windows that totally sucks

MacOS and Office for Mac inserting characters

On a Mac, to enter the Exploding Head 🤯 symbol:

  • Command + Control + Spacebar shortcut to open the Character Viewer.   
  • Search for “ Exploding “ and the Viewer should find the symbol you need.

Despite the name Character Viewer, the Apple system tool will also insert characters into any program, including Office for Mac.
