Some of the examples of commands that Windows Copilot can handle include switching to dark mode, enabling do not disturb mode, capturing screenshots, summarising websites, composing stories, or even creating images. A limited number of Windows settings plugins are currently supported by Windows Copilot, but no third-party plugins are supported. Nonetheless, Microsoft intends to add more capabilities and improve the overall Windows Copilot experience in response to useful feedback from Windows Insiders.

Users must have Windows Build 23493 or a higher version in the Dev Channel, as well as Microsoft Edge version 115.0.1901.150 or a newer iteration to enjoy the benefits of Copilot.

As the preview progresses, Windows Insiders will have the invaluable opportunity to provide feedback and contribute to the further development of Windows Copilot. This step-by-step process allows Microsoft to refine the feature and ensure it perfectly aligns with the needs and expectations of users.
