    2. After that, click on “ Show All



    3. Now, Click on “ Create “ button


    4. After that, In First Field, click on “ Find Image” to browse the image file, that you want as a emoticon. ( for example, i have browsed mine TechSurface Logo “ “ )

    In Second field, Enter a keyboard shortcut for your emoticon. ( for example here i have used TSL, so whenever i type TSL : the TechSurface logo “ “ will appear )

    The sw installs a toolbar. You have no choice to uncheck that option. You have to uninstall it through the cp; plus I think not all its smiley content is appropriate for all ages. One can uninstall the sw through CP however.
