Microsoft has released the KB5032288 November 2023 Windows 11 preview update with improvements for the Copilot AI assistant and almost a dozen bug fixes.
Windows Copilot started rolling out to Windows 11 22H2 devices in September and now is enabled by default on systems running Windows 11 23H2.
After installing the KB5032288 preview update, the company says the AI-powered digital assistant will be available across multiple displays and will also show up as a thumbnail preview in the Alt+Tab dialog.
Those using a Windows local account can only inquire assistance from Windows Copilot ten times, and beyond this limit, they’ll have to log in using a verified account.
Additionally, the November 2023 preview cumulative update improves the speed at which Copilot opens from the taskbar.
Users interested in installing the current month’s preview release can pilot to Settings > Windows Update and select ‘Download and install’ after checking for updates.
Alternatively, the update can be manually installed by downloading it from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

On Friday, Redmond also started rolling out the Copilot AI assistant to Windows 10 systems with the KB5032278 November 2023 preview update.
The company added on Monday that the December 2023 preview updates will be skipped, with the regular release cycle to be resumed in January 2024.
“Because of reduced operations during the Western holidays and the upcoming new year, there won’t be a non-security preview release for the month of December 2023,” Microsoft said.
“There will be a monthly security release for December 2023. Normal monthly servicing for both security and non-security preview releases will resume in January 2024.”
Microsoft will also stop delivering Windows 11 22H2 optional preview releases after February 2024 but will continue providing cumulative monthly security updates for this version.
