Text Prediction is one of the most useful features an operating system can provide. Not only does it save time, it also takes care of your spelling mistakes that could embarrass you on a social network or official document. Windows 10 also provides text prediction, but it has been limited to the software keyboard, which is mainly used on the tablets. Starting with Windows 10 Version 1803, you can now enable text prediction for the hardware keyboard under Windows 10.
Enable text prediction for the hardware keyboard
Open Settings > Devices and switch to the Keyboard area.
Scroll to Hardware keyboard.
- Switch to Show text suggestions when writing
- Switch to Autocorrect misspelled words I Type
This is it !
How does this
It works in all Windows 10 applications, including Edge, Notepad and so on. It does not work with third-party applications such as Chrome.
As soon as you start typing, suggestions with a maximum of three or four words will appear. To select one of the suggested words, press the up arrow key, then use the left and right arrow keys to navigate. And to complete a word, press the space bar to include one of the suggestions.
If you do not follow the correct English words, you can disable autocorrection for misspelled words.
However, it is a major disadvantage not to support all applications, especially when it comes to chromium. There are many users who use Chrome on Windows and use it for everything. This user must use predictive text.
It works with any language
Officially Microsoft claims it only works with US English, but I see it works with all supported languages for the Windows 10 software keyboard. I tried some Hindi words, and it suggested them.
It includes Assamese, Bashkir, Belarus, Greenland, Hawaiian, Icelandic, Icelandic, Igbo, Irish, Kyrgyz, Luxembourgish, Maltese, Maori, Mongolian, Nepalese, Pashto, Sakha, Tajik, Tatar, Tswana, Turkmen, Urdu, Uighur, Welsh, Welsh, Xhosa, Yoruba and Zulu.
Not only is it easier to switch between languages when using the software keyboard, but Microsoft has also enabled multilingual text prediction, which also works for the hardware keyboard.
So if you write in more than one written Latin language, text prediction works.
- Go to Settings > Devices
- Go to Keyboard section.
- Scroll to Multilingual text prediction.
- Enable failover to Show text predictions based on recognized languages you enter
