Windows Copilot

Microsoft revealed Windows Copilot, the first AI assistant integrated into a PC platform, in its latest Windows 11 Insider update.

Αυτή η πρωτοποριακή λειτουργία δυάζει το Bing Chat και άλλες προσθήκες για να βοηθήσει τους χρήστες σε διάφορες εργασίες μέσω της πλαϊνής γραμμής Copilot. Αυτή η αλλαγή αντιπροσωπεύει ένα βοηθό AI να είναι έτοιμος να καθοδηγήσει τους χρήστες σε όλες τις ψηφιακές τους εργασίες.

Activating Windows Copilot is a simple process, conveniently located on the taskbar. The sidebar is present across all windows, programs and applications, ensuring consistent help.

It will allow users to optimize functions, interact with preferred applications, personalize settings and perform actions more intuitively. It will enhance features like Snap Assist, copy/paste, Snipping Tool and personalization.

New file explorer

Powered by the Windows App SDK and designed with WinUI, the revamped File Explorer features a streamlined interface. Here, the recommended files for Azure Active Directory (AAD) users are presented in a carousel, with thumbnail support coming next.

The Quick Access folders, Favorites and recent sections also benefit from a refreshed WinUI-based look.

The new address bar differentiates between local and cloud folders and has built-in status icons.

Microsoft is also introducing a revamped details window in File Explorer (accessible via ALT + Shift + P). It is designed to display relevant file information and enable collaboration without having to open files.

When a file is selected and the window is activated, users will see a thumbnail, sharing status, activity, related files and emails, and more. The new window can be turned on or off via the View menu and a button on the command bar.

Dynamic lighting

Dynamic Lighting gives users and developers native control over their device's lighting, which implements the open HID LampArray standard.

This move toward an open standard is designed to enhance the RGB device and software ecosystem by increasing device and application interoperability. The new feature also includes APIs for Windows apps to control devices and a custom settings page for users.

Major device manufacturers such as Acer, ASUS, HP, HyperX, Logitech, Razer and Twinkly have partnered with Microsoft on this project. You can find a list of currently compatible devices at MS Learning Hardware Dynamic Lighting page.

To configure a HID LampArray device, go to the new Dynamic Lighting page in Settings > Personalization > Dynamic Lighting.

Windows Ink improvements
The updated Windows Ink allows users to enable Ink directly on edit fields, significantly improving recognition technology and gestures when users need to make changes.

The goal is to allow users to write handwriting anywhere they can type on their Windows device.

Currently, these enhancements only support English (US), but additional language support is on the way. You can manage this experience through Settings > Bluetooth & devices > Pen & Windows Ink.

Improved volume mixer
