Microsoft’s Copilot: Startup on Windows 11, for your widescreen experience!

6 months ago

TLDR:

  • Microsoft is testing a new feature in Windows 11 that automatically opens the Copilot interface upon boot on PCs with wide screens.
  • The behavior is currently being tested and may or may not be implemented in future updates.
  • Users will have the option to disable the automatic opening of Copilot.

Microsoft is rolling out a new Windows 11 preview build for Insiders in the Dev Channel, and this build includes a feature that automatically opens the Copilot interface when booting a PC with a wide screen. However, Microsoft states that this behavior is just a test and is not guaranteed to become a permanent feature. Users will have the ability to disable the automatic opening of Copilot on their PCs. The company does not specify what constitutes a “wide screen” for this feature to take effect.

This change is seen as unnecessary and potentially annoying to users. However, it may be part of a larger update to Copilot that is rumored to enhance productivity across apps, files, and search. In that case, users might want the advanced version of Copilot to run automatically at start-up. As of now, the behavior is still being evaluated through testing with Insiders.
