In the Keyboard settings of my MacBook, I have selected "Press 🌐 (globe) to Show Emoji & Symbols":
While this works fine on the internal keyboard, pressing fn 🌐 on an external Magic Keyboard doesn't open the emoji picker when my MacBook is in the clamshell mode, that is when its lid is closed.
Is there a way to make it work?
Update: Actually, sometimes it doesn't work, and sometimes it does. It seems random so far.
