How To Use Copilot On Windows 10?


Microsoft has announced artificial generative intelligence called CoPilot, which was recently integrated into Windows 11. Additionally, the company is slowly expanding CoPilot to its products and services, allowing users to discover and create content using natural language prompts. The new AI-powered CoPilot comes to Windows 10 in preview for Home and Pro users and helps with various tasks and questions about Windows.

Windows 11 has reached 400 million devices after two years of its launch, which is lower than the adoption rate of Windows 10. Therefore, Microsoft is expected to announce a new Windows version in 2024. Even after a long time since the launch of Windows 11, many Windows 10 users still continue to use it for their daily tasks. Windows 11 brings many new features and several benefits, such as a streamlined design, CoPilot, Microsoft Phone Link, and Store support. CoPilot for Windows 10 works the same way as the Windows 11 version.

The company announced CoPilot, a generative AI model for Windows 10 22h2, in the release preview for Windows Insiders. Previously this was available exclusively for Windows 11, but now it is coming to the previous generation of the operating system. You can use Windows CoPilot to answer your questions faster and get creative ideas to accomplish tasks by integrating them into your daily routine, improving your productivity.

CoPilot is in the Windows 10 Release Preview, but Microsoft decided to backport it, and now it’s enabled by default for everyone. The benefits of CoPilot include the ability to perform various tasks such as writing, rewriting, improving or optimizing content, generating imaginative and innovative content such as poems, stories, code, essays, songs, etc., and giving of informative and engaging responses to user questions.

How to use CoPilot in Windows 10

You can start using CoPilot directly from the taskbar in Windows 10. To access it, click the CoPilot icon on the taskbar or use voice command to chat with CoPilot and get relevant information or suggestions. However, CoPilot cannot communicate with operating system-level features or open apps on Windows 10.

Users can also launch CoPilot with the keyboard shortcut Windows + C, which launches CoPilot in Windows 10. Additionally, Windows 10 CoPilot works similarly to Windows 11, but some features were not available during the initial release. The latest version of Windows 10 will not receive any significant updates and Microsoft is only making additional investments in AI features such as CoPilot for Windows 10.

The latest operating system, CoPilot, can perform more PC-related functions in Windows 11 than in Windows 10. CoPilot is similar to ChatGPT, which is popular with OpenAI and used by research organizations supported by Microsoft. ChatGPT has reached 100 million weekly active users and can create images, audio and text with just a few words of human instruction.

Remark: IT pros can use MDM or Group Policy settings to manage CoPilot in Windows 10, which ensures that CoPilot has commercial data protection enabled for the best experience.

Limitations and challenges for Windows 10 Copilot

CoPilot is currently in preview and may not work on some devices. Microsoft plans to enable CoPilot by default on all PCs and will add more valuable features soon. Before we close this article, we would like to emphasize one thing: Windows 10 will reach end of support on October 14, 2025. It is recommended to migrate to Windows 11, which offers the most secure Windows platform to date, simplifying IT management and a modern user experience with all the key capabilities of CoPilot integrations. Users can also use Windows Autopatch, Windows 365, or a Windows 11 Pro device to upgrade to Windows 11.

Therefore, enabling CoPilot comes with several risks and caveats as there may be potential bugs or instabilities when enabling CoPilot on Windows 10. This feature is still in preview and is only officially available to some.
