Microsoft Enhances Copilot for Windows in Response to User Feedback


Microsoft Corporation announced updates to its Copilot for Windows on Tuesday, following feedback from users. Shilpa Ranganathan, Corporate Vice-President for Windows at Microsoft, took to her X (formerly Twitter) account to share the news, revealing a subtle yet significant change.

The update focuses on the chat windows for Copilot, which will now launch with a larger chat space by default, addressing a common user request. Ranganathan emphasized that users retain the ability to resize the Copilot chat window according to their preferences. Furthermore, they can switch back to a thinner side-by-side window if desired.

Additionally, Ranganathan hinted at the possibility of introducing more chat window size options in the future. This could include options for the Copilot window to occupy the entire screen or one monitor in a two-monitor desktop PC setup.

In addition to the larger default chat window size, users will now find a dedicated button to make Copilot appear side by side with another open window. This feature allows Copilot to cover half the screen alongside any open app and seamlessly returns to overlay mode with another click of the button.

Responding to a user suggestion for full-screen support, Ranganathan acknowledged that Microsoft is considering this idea. Given that Copilot operates as a web-view implementation and co-exists with the Edge browser, implementing full-screen support should be feasible. Users are advised to ensure they have the latest version of Microsoft Edge installed to access these new features.

The updates to Copilot underscore Microsoft’s commitment to improving user experience and responsiveness to feedback. Ranganathan suggests ongoing development for Copilot in Windows, indicating that there is much more to come.
