This can make typing go substantially faster once your device learns some of your most used phrases. You can also enable this feature on your Windows 11 PC using a physical keyboard.

Select Typing and then scroll down to Hardware keyboard. Turn on Show text suggestions.  If you’ve accidentally turned predictive typing on, just slide it to the Off positionYou also have the option to turn on Autocorrect.
