Microsoft says uninstalling Copilot in Windows 10 isn’t supported for now | Laptop News

Copilot has been introduced to Windows to improve your workflow. However, you might want to remove it. Whether you don’t like Microsoft’s approach to implementing AI in your system or have other reasons, uninstalling Copilot in Windows 10 isn’t currently supported.

When asked about uninstalling Copilot in Windows 10, Microsoft said this isn’t possible. “While we don’t currently support uninstalling Copilot, you can right-click the Copilot icon and unpin it to remove it from always showing on your taskbar,” the company explained.

This means you currently only have the option to hide the Copilot icon from your screen. However, even after hiding it, you can still access it by simply pressing the Windows + C key.

You can remove Copilot using Registry or Group Policy (sort of)

If you want to completely remove Copilot from Windows, meaning you don’t want it to appear even after pressing its shortcut key, you will have to disable it using the Local Group Policy Editor or Registry Editor.

Since the Local Group Policy Editor is not available in the Windows Home edition, you can use the Registry Editor method. If you have a Windows Pro edition, you can choose either tool.

Here’s how to disable Copilot on Windows 10 using the Registry Editor:

  1. Open the Start menu, type Registry Editor in the search bar, and press Enter.
  2. In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following location:
  3. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
  4. In the right pane, right-click on an empty space, select New, and then choose DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  5. Name the new value ShowCopilotButton.
  6. Double-click the ShowCopilotButton value, type 0 in the Value data field, and click OK.

After that, restart your PC and you will see…
