The middle finger: it’s a universal hand gesture that can cause offence to many people no matter what country you’re in.

Very few people don’t know what it means and, despite becoming an official emoji last year, Apple, Google and other major tech companies have ignored it.

Windows 10 support

Well, Microsoft has decided not to ignore the gesture, and has added Windows 10 support for the “reversed hand with middle finger extended.” So if you’re a Windows 10 user, you can really show friends, family, enemies or even complete strangers what you think of them.

The middle finger gesture is even available in several skin tones, including black and even grey.
