Windows 11 has a lot of interesting features that people are slowly starting to uncover for themselves. One such feature is Typing Insights. Typing Insights isn’t exactly a groundbreaking new feature as it has been around on Android and iOS devices for years and is traditionally called Predictive Text.

Although it isn’t always going to get things right, it is capable of learning your usual outcomes, which will make it far more accurate over time. If you’re using a traditional Windows device like a laptop or a desktop PC this feature is basically useless, however, if you have a touch device you might as well enable it, so follow along as we guide you through the process.
