Unleashing the Power of Copilot AI in Microsoft Word

Introduction: Microsoft’s Copilot AI is a groundbreaking feature that revolutionizes the way we write and create content in Microsoft Word. Leveraging the power of artificial intelligence, Copilot assists users in drafting, summarizing, rewriting, and transforming text. Whether you’re a seasoned writer or just starting, Copilot can be your creative companion. Let’s explore its capabilities and how you can harness its potential.

Draft with Copilot

When you open a new blank document in Word, Copilot is ready to assist. Here’s how it works:

  1. Compose Your Prompt:
    • Upon creating a new line or a blank document, the Draft with Copilot experience appears.
    • Describe what you want Copilot to generate. It could be as simple as “Write an essay about baseball” or more complex instructions.
    • For Microsoft 365 license holders, you can reference up to three existing files to ground the content Copilot drafts.
  2. Generate Content:
    • Copilot will generate new content based on your prompt.
    • You can choose to keep it, discard it, or ask Copilot to regenerate a different version.
    • Navigate through Copilot’s suggestions using the < and > buttons.
  3. Fine-Tune Responses:
    • In the Copilot compose box, provide instructions like “Make this more concise.”
    • Copilot will adjust its response based on your input.
  4. Inspire Me:
    • In a document with existing content, use the Inspire Me button.
    • Copilot will automatically continue writing based on the content already in your document.

Transform with Copilot

Sometimes rewriting and editing take more effort than the initial writing. Copilot can help transform your existing content:

  1. Existing Content Transformation:
    • Copilot not only creates new content but also helps you transform existing content.
    • Use the Transform with Copilot feature to refine and enhance your documents.

Chat with Copilot

Have questions about your document? Copilot has answers! Open the Copilot pane via the icon in the ribbon’s Home tab. Ask broad or specific questions, and Copilot will provide helpful responses.
