Microsoft to add dedicated Copilot key to Windows 11 keyboards in first major change in 30 years

Microsoft is introducing a dedicated Copilot key For Windows 11 keyboards – the first major change to a PC keyboard in almost 30 years.

Microsoft says 2024 will be the year of the AI PC.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft will introduce the Copilot key on a number of new Windows 11 PCs from its ecosystem partners.

These new computers will be available from late February.

The Copilot key will also be introduced across all Surface devices at around the same time.

Copilot marks a major shift in the Windows 11 PC experience with the ability to weave in AI as part of a customer’s daily workflow.

Copilot AI can help customers increase their efficiency, create and edit content, summarised lengthy documents and unread emails, compose letters and responses and much, much more.

The Copilot key will now join the Windows key as a central part of the PC keyboard.

When it is pressed, it invokes the Copilot in Windows experience to make it easier to engage with the impressive new technology every single day.

“Over the last year, we have been at the forefront of this shift, innovating and improving our product experiences with Copilot, your everyday AI companion, at the centre, says Yusuf Mehdi, Executive Vice President & Consumer Chief Marketing Officer.

“From reinventing the way people search with Copilot in Bing, and unlocking productivity with Copilot for Microsoft 365, to reimagining how people get things done on the PC with Copilot in Windows, we’ve listened to feedback and doubled down to create an experience that helps people every day.

“We’re also seeing incredible momentum from our silicon partners AMD, Intel and Qualcomm, all of whom have introduced their latest silicon innovations to the world that unlock new AI experiences on the Windows PC.

Together, we’re putting new system architectures in place to power new Windows AI experiences bringing together the GPU, CPU, NPU and the cloud.”
