How to Enable Text Prediction for Hardware Keyboard on Windows 10

Text prediction is something that we all want to have. On Android, we already have this feature in the Gboard app. We are talking about the feature that helps you correct the spelling mistakes or suggest text suggestions as you type.

If we talk about the desktop operating system – Windows 10, the text suggestion feature has been there for a long time, but it was only available on the on-screen keyboard. However, starting with Windows 10 version 1803, Microsoft has changed the way text suggestions work.

On Windows 10 version 1803, Microsoft has made it possible to enable text prediction for hardware keyboards in Windows 10. Once enabled, the text suggestions will appear floating over text as you type. What’s more useful is that the text suggestion will work everywhere, including Notepad, Word Document, anywhere on the internet, etc.
