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.
How to enable or disable Typing insights using Settings
To enable or disable Typing insights statistics on Windows 10, use these steps:
- Open Settings.
- Click on Devices.
- Click on Typing.
Under "How AI has helped you," click the Typing insights option.
Turn on or off the Typing insights toggle switch depending on your preference.
Once you've completed the steps, if you enabled the feature, then over time, you can come back to this page to see how Microsoft's AI has been helping you to avoid grammar mistakes and improve your typing efficiency. For example, on this page, you can see the number of times the system helped with word corrections, autocomplete, stroke saves by suggestions, and more.
