  • The refresh button starts a new conversation on Copilot.
  • Until now, it was hidden in the ellipsis menu, making it somewhat harder to reach.
  • But now, the button will be visible up-front. 

Windows Copilot is already on Windows 11, and the AI tool is apparently following Bing Chat’s steps. Copilot AI is able to work with plugins and use them to bring Windows 11 users the best experience on the operating system.

The news came quickly after Windows spotters found out that Bing Chat brought back some already-deprecated plugins on Edge, such as Math Solver.

However, as Math Solver appeared as a plugin on Bing Chat, Windows Copilot also got them. That means that every update impacting Bing Chat on Windows 11, will most likely impact Copilot as well.

But it seems Copilot is also getting its own features. Spotted by Windows enthusiast, @Leopeva64, the AI tool is getting a Refresh button that will allow users to refresh conversations and start all over. The button will no longer be hidden ellipsis menu. Microsoft decided to place the Windows Copilot refresh button up-front, so users could spot it easier now.

Windows Copilot refresh button: what does it do & where to find it

The refresh button will start a new conversation on Copilot, so whenever users want to bring in new inputs to the AI tool, hitting this button should do the task of removing previous conversations and starting a new one at once.

Until recently, Copilot’s refresh button was hidden in the ellipsis menu, and it wouldn’t be available at a glance. Users needed to click on the menu, and then select the button, which would refresh the conversation.

However, it seems that Microsoft will soon make a change to it: the button will now appear as an icon at the top of the Copilot AI. Users will be able to hit it at a glance, without opening up other panels to do copilot refresh button

The change should be live on Windows 11 in the following weeks. Have you used Copilot yet? What’s your experience with it?
