There's a charmap tool in Windows but it lacks certain features:

  1. Search by description: it should be able to search by the description of the characters, like "back arrow" should find ← and maybe even ↰

  2. It should have all the latest emoji characters like 👈 (which should also show up when searching for "left")

Is there any charmap-like software for Windows that also fulfills these two features?

It's a fantastic Extended Character Map that will let you explore all of your choices in a font like Segoe UI Emoji. (src: How to enter and use Emoji on Windows 8.1)

🗸 Search by description (search isn't great (no wildcard/regex) but still...)
🗸 Latest Emojis
