How to Insert Thumbs Up in Outlook 2013, 2010 Email

Thumbs up is a kind of interesting and useful icon to use in work and the personal emailing environment. Since Microsoft Office, Outlook is having less (or not) smileys option to use in emails, most of us do not know how to insert thumbs up icon in Outlook emails. This guide shows you how to insert thumbs up in Outlook 2013, 2010 and 2007. I’m sure the email recipient will ask you how it was done because most of the people do not know that it can be done in Outlook emails.

Do not worry, we are not going to install any add-on, icons, pictures or anything extra to achieve it. We will use the built-in symbols on Microsoft office 2013 version. I’m sure these symbols will be available in Office 2010 and 2007 too.

  14. To easily retrieve the icon, I highlighted the thumbs up icon, increased font size to 28, and saved it in quickparts (Outlook 2013 > Insert > QuickParts > Save Selection to Quickpart Gallery > Name = thumbsup). Typing thumbsup will insert the icon into your text.

  15. Super helpful – thanks!

  16. Good One. Really helpful. When I am pressing F3 after saving in quick part its not coming.
