This tutorial will show you how to uninstall or reinstall the Copilot app for your account or all users in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Windows is the first PC platform to provide centralized AI assistance to you with Microsoft Copilot. Copilot helps you get answers and inspirations from across the web, supports creativity and collaboration, and helps you focus on the task at hand. Do more with Copilot in Windows.

With the new Copilot app, you can search and access your Copilot anytime, anywhere. Ask your Copilot anything you want, from trivia questions to creating images. Like a friend, Copilot will give you quick and helpful answers, along with suggestions for what to do next. You can even use voice to search or chat, and your history and preferences will sync across all your devices.

Copilot is designed to enhance your productivity by leveraging the power of AI. To access the full capabilities of Copilot, you are required to sign into the Copilot app using your Microsoft account or Microsoft Entra Account (work or school account).

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.

If you don't want the Copilot app, you can easily uninstall it for only your account or all users on the computer.
