Microsoft to Launch Its Copilot AI Automatically

Microsoft has begun testing a change to Windows 11 that will reportedly see its AI-powered Copilot feature open automatically when Windows starts on “widescreen devices.” The change as you should know is being tested as part of the latest Dev Channel preview of Windows 11 by Microsoft, enabling Windows testers to effectively provide feedback ahead of a wider rollout.

“We are trying out opening Copilot automatically when Windows starts on widescreen devices with some Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel,” Microsoft in a blog post stated. The firm does not make it clear as to what exactly a “widescreen” device is, but the Windows 11 setting itself reveals that Copilot will automatically open “when you’re using a wider screen.” So I’m assuming that this is limited to ultrawide monitors and less traditional desktop resolutions, but I have however asked Microsoft to clarify and will update you accordingly when they do.

This Is a Means for Microsoft to Try and Push Its AI Technology

Either way, this is yet another means for Microsoft to try and push its AI technology that will very much likely draw criticism from users of Windows, and yet another thing that you just might have to disable in Windows if it is that Microsoft proceeds with this very change.

You should also know that it is not too dissimilar to the aggressive push of Microsoft Edge inside Windows 11, which automatically is launched instead of your default browser if it is that you make use of Windows Widgets or the Windows Search function.

What You Need To Know About Microsoft Copilot Changes

This very latest Copilot change in question comes just a couple of days after Microsoft announced a new Copilot key for Windows PCs and laptops, which in case you don’t know when pressed launches this same chatbot-like experience. Manufacturers of Laptop such as Dell and Lenovo have already unveiled laptops with the new Copilot key, and many more are also expected to follow in the coming months.

Microsoft to Add More Customization Options to Copilot Inside Windows

Microsoft also looks all set to add more customization options to Copilot inside Windows very soon. X (social media platform formerly known as Twitter) user Albacore has reportedly discovered an unannounced chat providers option, thus suggesting that Microsoft might open Copilot up to third-party plug-ins or chatbots that are inside Windows.
