Microsoft announced that Windows 10 Build 19045.3757 (KB5032278) has been released on the Release Preview Channel for Windows Insiders using build 22H2. This update introduces Copilot to Windows as a preview feature for Windows 10 Home and Pro devices.
To access Copilot on Windows, users need to go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, enable “Get the latest updates as soon as they become available,” then Check for updates, Microsoft mentioned.
It’s a button on the right side of the taskbar. When clicked, it expands into a panel that provides suggestions and assistance based on the user’s current activity. For example, suppose the user composes an email. In this case, Copilot can suggest relevant words or phrases to help them complete their message.
Regarding availability, the Copilot feature in Windows will be gradually rolled out via Controlled Feature Rollout (CFR) over the coming months, allowing eligible users to benefit from this feature.
Currently, Copilot on Windows is incompatible with taskbars positioned vertically on the right or left sides of the screen. It will only appear when the taskbar is located horizontally at the top or bottom of the screen. Aside from that, there are a few known issues, such as potential instability when using the Refresh button when using the Copilot experience, crashes when clicking links in the Copilot experience or closing Microsoft Edge or Copilot itself.
Devices running Windows 10 Pro and managed by organizations will not be part of the initial 22H2 rollout. Likewise, devices running Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions and version 22H2 will not be included in the first phase of the rollout.
Despite known issues, Copilot remains a valuable tool for Windows 10 users. I appreciate Microsoft’s continued support of its users.
