Revolutionary Change: Windows 11 PCs to Feature CoPilot Key Instead of Right Ctrl Button, Microsoft Announces

Microsoft is introducing a new feature, the Copilot key, to Windows 11 PCs. This is a significant change to the Windows PC keyboard, which has not been updated in nearly 30 years. The dedicated Copilot key will replace the right Ctrl key on upcoming Windows 11 PCs, making it easier for users to interact with AI features in their daily tasks.

Microsoft has been a pioneer in AI technology for several years, and it was the first company to showcase the potential of Machine Learning and Artificial intelligence that the public could use to get work done quicker and easier. With the introduction of the Copilot key, Microsoft aims to make AI features more accessible to users. The key will be included on upcoming Windows 11 PCs, and Microsoft Surface devices.

This move comes as no surprise to many, as AI has been a hot buzzword for a while now. Microsoft has already incorporated advanced AI features into its various apps, services, and even Windows 11. The CoPilot key is set to become mandatory for OEMs shipping Windows computers in the near future, and will be available on upcoming Surface devices.

While the introduction of the Copilot key is a step forward in enabling users to interact with AI on the PC, some users have expressed confusion and disappointment about the change. Many users are unsure about the removal of the right Ctrl key and the addition of the dedicated Copilot key on upcoming devices.

Microsoft has also revealed new models of Surface devices at the Consumer Electronics Show, such as the Surface Go 3, Surface Pro 9, and Surface Laptop 5. These devices are optimized for use with the new Copilot key and feature the latest 12th-generation Intel Core processors, full day battery life, and Thunderbolt 4 support.
