Microsoft Tests Out New Suggested Actions Feature for Windows 11 Clipboard

Suggested actions have been a mainstay of recent UI innovations for most tech companies, and Microsoft is no different. The tech juggernaut has been working heavily on improving Windows 11 and turning it into a much more efficient operating system because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up helping it maintain its status as the dominant player in that particular arena.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Microsoft is testing out a brand new suggested actions feature, one that will focus mostly on the clipboard. As of today, Microsoft will be offering users that have access to Windows 11 Dev and Beta builds this new feature which basically gives some suggested actions whenever you copy something to the clipboard with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Users that possess click to dial programs can now call numbers just by copying them by clicking on the suggested action that Windows 11 would show below. Right clicking on a particular date and copying it will also have its own unique suggested actions, such as showing you your schedule on that day or giving you the option of creating a new event in your calendar.

Selecting any of these suggested actions can make life easier for you because your operating system would fill all the details out without you having to paste them. The data that you can use these suggested actions for is still quite limited, but in spite of the fact that this is the case Microsoft is asking Dev and Beta build users to give them feedback which they can then use to improve the feature before giving it a wider rollout.

There is also a chance that this feature is just an experiment that won’t necessarily be a part of future Windows 11 updates. That might happen if user feedback is negative, and it’s heartening to see Microsoft taking feedback from its users so seriously after ignoring it for so long in the past.
