How to enable Typing insights on Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Although it's not advertised, Windows 10 includes AI technology to help you improve your typing efficiency. You can see it in action as you type and the system automatically corrects mistakes in words, offers suggestions to save strokes typing the full word, when getting next word prediction, and more.

Starting with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), you can enable the Typing insights feature that allows you to see the number of times AI has helped you when typing using the touch keyboard, and word predictions if you're using a hardware keyboard.

In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the easy steps to enable or disable Typing insights using the Settings app available with the October 2018 Update or later.
