Private Character Editor is a limited font editor that comes with Windows for creating private use characters. Those characters are user-defined characters by Unicode.1

The program is accessible via the Start Menu on East Asian editions of Windows.2 In Windows 7, where it is located in the Accessories → Systems Tools folder, it is only accessible from Run command or command line on other editions of Windows. However, the program itself can be found in the folder C:\WINDOWS\system32, under the name eudcedit.exe.
