I have completely removed the Co-pilot app from my windows 11 system as I don't need AI in an app on my system. If I need the service of Ai I prefer to use the browser rather than a System wide app.
This is how I remove the Co-pilot app from my PC.

Run PowerShell as Administrator

Code:
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.Ai.Copilot.Provider -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online | where-object {$_.PackageName –like "*Copilot*"} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online

I have disabled all AI on my Windows com. I will also try to avoid the new 24h2 update. I think Windows are way too intrusive with the newest stuff they try to implement. If they continue this way, I probably change to Linux.

In the settings panel, I turned off Copilot and uninstalled the associated universal apps. On my Windows 11 device, Copilot did not show up in the taskbar. To use the Copilot free plan, you need to sign in, and there are usage limits. There's another AI subscription I have that proves useful occasionally.

Honestly, it's crazy. Now I have Copilot in my phone keyboard, in the phone launcher (both from Microsoft), in the mobile and desktop browser, in the tray, and they also seem to promise it in notepad and in paint, but I use it only in the browser on the corresponding web page. Please, I don't need Copilot EVERYWHERE!😂😂😂

Uninstalled, disabled via policies and blocked via NextDNS, just to be sure.
Code:
rem Copilot / 0 - Off / 1 - On
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v "ShowCopilotButton" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

rem 1 - Disable Copilot
reg add "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsCopilot" /v "TurnOffWindowsCopilot" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Copilot" /v "CopilotDisabledReason" /t REG_SZ /d "FeatureIsDisabled" /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Copilot" /v "IsCopilotAvailable" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Copilot\BingChat" /v "IsUserEligible" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsAI" /v "DisableAIDataAnalysis" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsCopilot" /v "TurnOffWindowsCopilot" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
I like my taskbar to be simple and clean.

I disabled Copilot in the taskbar. But when I have to write a sum up or minutes of a meeting, I find it useful to correct myself and enhance my text.
Last week, I had to make a search for enterprises in my region that could repair pools. I could have used Google, but instead chose Gemini: I got everything I wanted in a clean interface in a few seconds.
A month ago, I also had to make two PowerPoint presentations for friends. What would have taken a few hours a year ago took me thirty minutes.
I use AI a lot and save a lot of time, and I'm way much more productive.

I don't use it and don't like to use AI at all as an integrated service in my machine, already disabled by using O&O ShutUp10++ recommended settings.
