    It’s a cool idea, but be warned: older programs/apps don’t recognize emojis and will give an error message that makes you think your file is corrupted until you realize it just can’t read the emoji in the filename. If you’re not using your files or folders with older programs, then this is a great, fun little tip! 😉

      We never said to use Emoji in program names. We said file and folder names – not program or app names.
