GeneralWindows 11 emojis. These goggles do nothing... Pin

The Win10 bootcamp partition on my iMac became corrupted and no matter how many days win10 spin their little dots in the centre of the screen, it could not recover the partition. (macOS had no trouble reading any file it wanted to, though, so, ahem, Windows)

Anyway, I've switched to a DELL laptop for now and it refuses to let me install Win10. It says I can, but it won't. After each install it's surprise! Here's Windows 11! Isn't it great!!?

Anyway...

The emojis. What is going on with the Windows 11 emojis? I thought I was in Sesame Street. Or on Facebook 2010. They are startlingly ugly. A who-needs-a-second-coffee arresting.

I assume this is a design approved by the accessibility team (contrast, inclusivity, scaling, colours etc) which is all good, but I'm also guessing someone in the design team is still curled up in the foetal position, twitching slightly.
cheers
