My system is Windows 11 23H2.
CoPilot on taskbar and "Taskbar personalization CoPilot button ON /OFF" option only appear after system shutdown but not restarting system, whether logged in Microsoft account or not. Is this a bug or "normal"behaviour? Any remedy to this ?

What version are you running? Insider or release? I have no problems on release build.
These are just some of the tutorials Brink has written on co-pilot. You can always create a desktop shortcut for co-pilot if you can't get the taskbar icon to stick. Myself, I use co-pilot only in Edge. Hope one will help.

It says Preview on the top left corner in the popup window when clicked on the coPilot icon. CoPilot comes up all of the sudden , probably from one of the culmutative updates . I have two updates recently KB5034765 and KB5034467. Which one does CoPilot come from?

No it, does not disappear for me. But there are reports in feedback hub and the web that it does for some people.

Copilot may not be quite ready for primetime since each update seems to affect it for some users. My best suggestion for anyone affected is to make sure all the system files are in place.
Open a command prompt as administrator and type sfc /scannow
Pay attention to the scan results to see if SFC found anything it could not repair. If it found corruption it could not fix followup with this command (note the spaces)
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
Restart computer
(Note-you can follow up with another sfc /scannow command to make sure that dism repaired the files)

If copilot is that important to you you can also attempt a repair install. 11 Repair Install Windows 11 with an In-place Upgrade Tutorial

If that makes no difference, my next best suggestion is to use one of the other methods to access copilot while MS irons out the problems with it.

I do sfc once every week and not in the habit of installling anything unnecessary. Copilot just popped up one day. It is not important to me , just wondering why it disappears when restarting system. The upgrade to Windows 11 23H2 already gave me a problem with SD card . If anyone is interested to take a look:
