Apps Completely Disable and Remove Copilot in Windows 11


  • Staff
Copilot_banner.png

This tutorial will show you how to completely disable the Windows Copilot preview feature and remove Copilot from the taskbar, Windows Search, and Microsoft Edge for all users in Windows 11 and Windows 10.

Copilot in Windows provides centralized generative AI assistance to your users right from the Windows desktop. Copilot in Windows appears as a side bar docked on the Windows desktop and is designed to help users get things done in Windows. Copilot in Windows can perform common tasks in Windows like changing Windows settings, which makes it different from the browser-based Copilot in Edge. However, both user experiences, Copilot in Windows and Copilot in Edge, can share the same underlying chat provider platform.

References:

You must be signed in as an administrator to disable and remove Copilot.

This will also disable the sidebar in Microsoft Edge.


Disabling Copilot will also disable Secure DNS in Microsoft Edge.

However, you can still set and use DoT or DoH in Windows 11. This will be the same as having Secure DNS in Microsoft Edge set to "Use current service provider".


This tutorial will no longer work to disable/remove the new Copilot app that can be uninstalled instead. It will still disable/remove Copilot from Search and Edge.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22631.3810 and Windows 10 build 19045.4593 (RP and Beta) Microsoft is evolving the Copilot** experience on Windows as an app that will be pinned to the taskbar. This enables users to get the benefits of a traditional app experience, including the ability to resize, move, and snap the window.



EXAMPLE: Copilot on taskbar, Windows Search, and in Microsoft Edge

Copilot in Windows Search is only available in Windows 11 currently.

Creating/modifying registry keys will never remove software. Your article title is misleading.
Hello, :alien:

It's not at all.

Disabling Copilot using the method in the tutorial does indeed remove it from the locations mentioned in the information at the top of the tutorial.

Currently, nothing will uninstall Copilot though.

It's certainly an improvement. I'm very pleased with it.

    I own too many laptops: A Dell touch screen with Windows 11 and 6 others (not counting the other four laptops I bought for this household.) Being a PC builder I own many desktop PCs as well. I am a father of five providing PCs, laptops, and tablets for all my family, most of which I have modified, rebuilt, or simply built from scratch. I do not own a cell phone, never have, never will.

Disable copilot also disable Edge SecureDNS

Hello, :alien:

Hmm, it sure does. Odd disabling Copilot would disable Edge Secure DNS like that.

As a workaround, you can enable and use DoT or DoH in Windows 11 below instead. It'll be the same as having Edge Secure DNS set to "Use current service provider".

Why are so many afraid of/even angry about, Copilot? I have used it for some (admittedly) simple searches/tasks and it has been useful. Basically it summarized a lot of information that I would have to have made multiple internet searches to find.
How about Because. 1: Its rushed out. 2: It's not fully researched. 3: It can do things you do not know about ion the back ground 4: Its Dangerous. Why? Because. Go back to 1: Annnd Rinse and Repeat Ad infinitum. Now to uninstall this night mare. There by breaking windows security because it's an insidious program. Just like Internet Exploder was.

Question: what confuses me is that sometime, but not always, in addition to specifying
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsCopilot]
"TurnOffWindowsCopilot"=-
There is also a need to specify
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsCopilot]
"TurnOffWindowsCopilot"=-
It seems that sometimes HKCU entries override HKLM, and sometimes they are both needed.

Any rhyme or reason ?

Often group policies under "User Configuration" need to be set in both HKCU and HKLM locations to apply to all users.

View attachment 100718
The only method that I know of that will completely remove that icon requires that the authentic operating system be removed also. This is not impossible. There are several counterfeit operating systems circulating throughout the wonderful world wide web. They all have varying degrees of security and none of them have Microsoft's blessing. At what point Microsoft's Windows is no longer authentic due to excessive tweaking I will not surmise. I do know however that there are operating systems claiming to be Windows that are not actually Microsoft Windows. For legal reasons this forum cannot advocate the use of said Windows and that is fair.

The decision to go rogue is completely at the discretion of the user. Can this icon be removed? Sure it can. Is there a solution? Absolutely. Should you do it? That's your call. Drastic solutions require drastic measures.

Either one is on board with Microsoft or one is not.

    I own too many laptops: A Dell touch screen with Windows 11 and 6 others (not counting the other four laptops I bought for this household.) Being a PC builder I own many desktop PCs as well. I am a father of five providing PCs, laptops, and tablets for all my family, most of which I have modified, rebuilt, or simply built from scratch. I do not own a cell phone, never have, never will.
Uninstall Web Experience Package and Edge! Done!

That's cool, I never use Bing anyway! :cool:
I used to "uninstall" Edge but never without consequence and of course a Windows Update would try to reinstall it. Eventually I gave up on disposing of Edge as the tweaking always seemed to be more trouble than it was worth. My main browser is Fire Fox and my main search engine is Start Page.

I uninstalled the Store, Edge and Web Experience Package many Builds ago..., haven't seem 'em since! 🤷‍♂️
I'm not experiencing any dire consequences.
OneDrive always shows up with every new Build, though!

Good to know. I haven't bothered to try it with Win 11 yet although I did follow Brink's instructions on this thread and they appear to work well enough. I do get this in my start up menu though:
