BableMap is a free full-featured Unicode character map for Windows. I use it as a replacement for Microsoft's Character Map because it has so many more features, including:

  • Complete Unicode support for all blocks.
  • Adjustable display size and huge right-click preview.
  • Composite view will display every character that is included from any installed font.
  • Useful filter searching.
  • Easy access to the hex, decimal, HTML and other escape codes for each character.
  • Ability to get detailed stats on the character use of any typeface.


There are a couple things I don't like about BableMap. The form size is fixed, so you can't resize it to a custom size. Also, there isn't an option to hide unused glyphs from the display, so, if a typeface only supports a couple unicode characters, it's basically impossible to find them.
