Enable or Disable Typing Insights in Windows 10

Windows 10 includes a touch keyboard for computers and tablets with a touch screen. When you touch any text field on your tablet, the touch keyboard appears on the screen. If you don't have a touch screen, you can still launch it. Starting with Windows 10 build 17704, the OS is able to show you insights about how its AI has been helping you type with efficiency.

If you use the software keyboard on Windows, there are many features built into the typing experience that leverage AI and ML to help you be more efficient. Some examples include autocorrecting your spelling mistakes, prediction of the next word you would type, word suggestions as you start typing so you don’t have to type the full word and the number of words you’ve typed by swiping over the letters on the software keyboard. Windows now shows you stats about each of these features.

To enable or disable Typing Insights in Windows 10, do the following.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Navigate to Devices -> Typing.
