Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around for some time now, and during this time it has slowly found its way into different facets of our lives. Sometimes we benefit from the application of AI without even knowing it. With the October 2018 release of Windows 10, Microsoft added a feature that implements some AI aspects that can help us improve how we type. Typing Insights, once turned on, allows us to see personalized statistics for Autocompleted Words, Suggested Words, Keystrokes Saved, Spelling Corrections, and Swiped Words. Follow these quick steps in turning this setting on:
Figure 1. The Typing section of the Devices Settings.
Figure 2. The Typing Insights Window.
Whenever you want to view your stats, you can pull them up by pressing the Windows key and typing (without quotes) "Enable Typing Insights", then press Enter. This will open the Typing Insights section of the Settings dialog box where you can see your up-to-date statistics. (An example is shown in Figure 2, above.)
This new setting will be helpful in determining how much you use AutoCorrect or even how much you might rely on suggested words.
