Microsoft has confirmed that it is bringing artificial intelligence Copilot to Windows 10. It will first be available to program users Windows Insideras part of an upcoming update Release Preview, where Copilot appears on the right side of the main panel. If you click on it, you’ll see the familiar Copilot interface that you can use to ask AI questions, manage Windows features, or work with documents. Microsoft has confirmed that the Copilot window will not overlap desktop content or block open windows.
This move is not surprising. Windows 11 may be Microsoft’s latest operating system, but it only accounts for 26% of Windows installations, according to GlobalStats. You still have Windows 10 maintains 69% Windows market.
In 2020, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 was actively installed on 1 billion devices, and it seems to still be holding on to that number. For comparison, Windows Central reports that Windows 11 is on about 400 million devices. Just look at these numbers and it’s clear why Microsoft is bringing its latest technology to an aging operating system (however, the end-of-life date for this OP is still October 14, 2025).
Copilot for Windows 10 is coming to users’ devices in North America and parts of Asia and South America in the coming months. Later there should be an expansion to other areas.
