Copilot Text Actions

Please note that there are different visual effects you may see. By hovering your mouse over the Copilot icon, a menu of actions will appear, such as summarizing or explaining the copied text.

If you choose an action from the menu, Copilot will launch with the pre-configured action .

Additionally, you can launch Copilot by dragging an image file onto the Copilot icon in the taskbar.

E.g. you can make the AI assistant upscale it, resize, or blur the background.

Microsoft is rolling action Copilot actions gradually, so you may not see them right away. But you can speedup this process by downloading ViVeTool, opening Terminal as administrator, and running this command:

c:\vivetool\vivetool /enable /id:46874360,45596742

Substitute c:\vivetool with the folder path where you choose to store the vivetool.exe file.
