Are you a Windows 10 user who loves exploring new features and technology advancements? If so, you’re in luck! I’m here to provide you with an exciting guide on how to enable Copilot, a fascinating new feature in Windows 10. Copilot is a chatbot assistant powered by Microsoft Bing that aims to assist users in finding information, answering questions, and providing helpful suggestions. So, let’s dive right in and get you set up!
First things first, make sure you have Windows 10 build 19045.3754 or a newer version installed on your PC. At the time of writing, this build is only available in the Release Preview Channel, but don’t worry; it won’t be long before Microsoft releases it for all Windows 10 users.
Once you’ve confirmed your Windows 10 build, let’s update Microsoft Edge to ensure we have the latest version. Open the Edge browser and enter “edge://settings/help” in the address bar. This will take you to the settings page where you can check for any available updates and install them if necessary. Updating Edge will ensure compatibility and optimal performance with the Copilot feature.
Now it’s time to download the ViVeTool from GitHub. Head over to the GitHub repository and download the tool. Once the download is complete, extract the archive to a convenient folder on your computer. This will make it easier for you to access and use the ViVeTool during the setup process.
With the ViVeTool extracted, let’s open the Command Prompt as an Administrator. Go to the Start Menu, type “Command Prompt,” and right-click on it. From the context menu, select “Run as administrator.” Once the Command Prompt opens, navigate to the folder where you extracted the ViVeTool files using the CD command. For example, if you extracted the files to the folder “C:\Vive,” you can navigate there by typing “CD C:\Vive” and hitting Enter.
Now, it’s time to enable Copilot using the ViVeTool. In the Command Prompt window, type the following command: “vivetool /enable /id:46686174,47530616,44755019” and press Enter. This command will enable the Copilot feature on your Windows 10 system.
To activate the changes, you’ll need to restart your computer. Once it’s rebooted, you’re ready to proceed with the next steps.
Press the Win + R keys on your keyboard to bring up the Run dialog. Type “regedit” and hit Enter to launch the Windows Registry Editor.
In the Registry Editor, navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Copilot\BingChat. Double-click on the “IsUserEligible” value and a dialog box will appear.
Change the value data from 0 to 1 in the dialog box. It’s worth noting that for this to work, you must sign into Windows with your Microsoft Account. If you’re not signed in, the value will reset from 1 to 0 each time you restart your system.
Now that you’ve made the necessary changes in the Registry Editor, go ahead and restart your computer once again.
Finally, right-click on the taskbar and select “Show Copilot (preview) button” from the context menu. Once you’ve done this, the Copilot icon will appear to the right of the notification center button on your taskbar.
Please keep in mind that if you have your taskbar positioned on the right or left side of your screen, you may not see the Copilot icon. It will only appear if the taskbar is at the bottom or top of the screen.
That’s it; you’ve successfully enabled Copilot on your Windows 10 system! Now you can start exploring this exciting new feature and benefit from its incredible capabilities. Whether you need help finding information, asking questions, or seeking suggestions, Copilot is here to assist you every step of the way.
Enjoy the enhanced functionality and convenience that Copilot brings to your Windows 10 experience. Remember to stay up to date with the latest Windows 10 builds to ensure you don’t miss out on any exciting new features and advancements. Happy exploring!
