Microsoft has made an unexpected announcement that it will be bringing Copilot, previously exclusive to Windows 11, to Windows 10. This surprising move has left many users excited to try out this feature. Here’s how users can get Copilot on their Windows 10 devices.
To enable Copilot on Windows 10, users will first need to download and install Windows 10 build 19045.3754 or a newer version. However, it’s important to note that this build is currently only available in the Release Preview Channel. Additionally, users must update their Microsoft Edge browser to the latest version and download ViVeTool from GitHub.
Once users have extracted the ViVeTool archive in a convenient folder, they will need to open the Command Prompt as Administrator and navigate to the folder where the ViVeTool files are located. From there, users should enter the command “vivetool /enable /id:46686174,47530616,44755019” and press Enter. Restarting the computer will be necessary for the changes to take effect.
To further enable Copilot, users will need to open the Windows Registry Editor by pressing Win + R and typing “regedit”. This will allow them to navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Copilot\BingChat. Once there, they should double-click the IsUserEligible value and change its value data from 0 to 1.
After another restart, users will be able to right-click the taskbar and select “Show Copilot (preview) button” to make the Copilot icon appear to the right of the notification center button. However, it’s worth mentioning that users with the taskbar on the right or left side of the screen will not see the icon.
It’s important to proceed with caution when enabling Copilot on Windows 10, as it involves enlisting in the Windows Insiders Program, modifying the system registry, and using a third-party app. Users should ensure they back up important data before making any modifications to their system.
Overall, Microsoft’s decision to bring Copilot to Windows 10 has been met with excitement from users. This feature offers a range of benefits and functionalities that enhance the user experience. By following the steps outlined above, Windows 10 users can now enjoy the convenience and efficiency that Copilot provides.
