How to Turn On or Off Typing Insights in Windows 10


You can use different keyboards with Windows to fit your needs. The most common is a physical, external keyboard that you plug into your PC. Windows 10 includes a touch keyboard for PCs.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17704, Windows now shows you insights about how its AI has been helping you type with efficiency. If you use the software keyboard (aka: touch keyboard) on Windows 10, there are many features built into the typing experience that leverage AI and ML to help you be more efficient. Some examples include autocorrecting your spelling mistakes, prediction of the next word you would type, word suggestions as you start typing so you donít have to type the full word and the number of words youíve typed by swiping over the letters on the software keyboard. Windows 10 now shows you stats about each of these features.

Currently these stats cover the typing insights for software keyboard usage and hardware keyboard prediction features. If you like to see additional insights in the future releases, head over to the Feedback Hub and share your thoughts.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing typing insights for stats about software keyboard usage and hardware keyboard prediction features for your account in Windows 10.
