Get character map to show all characters

Windows 8

Asked
Asked by: SlickRCBD

Is there a way to get character map to simply show a list of all the characters in a font and the appropriate alt code to access them, including the ones below 33 such as the musical notes (♪♫), or is there a small offline program I can download to use as an alternative?

Alternately, The pre-Unicode Windows 9x versions of this program did what I want, if I were to extract them from my Windows 98SE computer (I can't recall if that had the Unicode version or not) or see if I can get an old Windows 95 machine up and running, could I expect to be able to run the program under Windows 7 64-bit Professional (setting it to Windows 9x compatibility mode count)?

Please don't tell me I don't want to do something without also providing the information requested.

Have a variant of an old-fashioned ASCII chart that shows all the characters in a font, with a pop-up menu to swap fonts, and easily shows what keystrokes are needed to create the special characters when typing in Word 2003/2007, Firefox, Thunderbird, Notepad, or Notepad++ (probably should add PowerPoint and Excel as well, but I haven't used PowerPoint in 3 years and can't recall the last time I needed special characters in Excel except possibly © or ®, though I could have used Pi on occasion, the only way I knew how to make it was to use the "Symbol" font and type p).

Character map comes close save for skipping a bunch of things I know are there such as ☺☻♥♦♣♠•◘○◙♂♀♪♫☼►◄↕‼¶§▬↨↑↓→•∟↔.
