Copilot Vision is a feature within the Microsoft Edge browser that enhances user interaction with web content through AI-powered tools. It allows users to ask complex questions, get summarized information, and perform various actions directly from the browser sidebar.

Here are some of the capabilities of Copilot Vision:

  • Interaction with Web Content: Users can circle content on a webpage to ask Copilot about it, such as pairing wine with recipes or comparing products.
  • Summarizing Documents: Copilot Vision can summarize PDFs and longer website content, making it easier to digest dense information.
  • Organizing Tabs: It can help organize tabs by grouping related ones, such as news-related tabs.
  • Importing Passwords: Copilot Vision can assist in importing passwords from other browsers.
  • Streaming Assistance: It can find where to stream a movie or send an email via Outlook.
  • Image Tweaking: Users can request changes to images, like altering color schemes or background details.

To access Copilot Vision, users need to sign into Microsoft Edge and select the Copilot icon in the browser sidebar.

Whether you want to enable it for a more interactive experience or disable it for a cleaner browsing interface, here’s how you can manage Copilot Vision in Microsoft Edge.
