HELP! charmap.exe portable?

Hi,

Is there a way to make charmap.exe portable so I can put it on my USB drive?

I might need this in the office because they have disabled nearly everything including charmap.

Thanks,

Thomas

I know phrase express was supposed to cover this as of version 7 , but I haven't been using it and I don't know if they ever got to version 7.

Before you find out a way to use charmap on your work computer (if there is any), you can use temporary replacement: Word - Insert - Symbol (If Office is installed, of course).

You could also try this 3rd party tool.

Hi Neutron16,

We don't have Office in work, we have LibreOffice.

Is there an option for that??
