How to disable Suggested actions on Windows 11

Suggested actions lets you quickly create calendar events or make calls from the text you copy to the clipboard, but if the feature isn't for you, here's how to disable it on Windows 11.

Windows 11 Suggested actions

On Windows 11, “Suggested actions” is a feature that brings up an inline menu to create a calendar event or make a phone call when you copy a date, time, or phone number to the clipboard.

For example, if you copy a phone number, the flyout would suggest making the call with Microsoft Teams or other apps available on the computer.

Coping a date or time will suggest creating a calendar event, and when you choose the app, the event will create with all the information already filled in.

The feature is available starting with Windows 11 build 25115 and higher releases, and it’s expected to ship with version 23H2, which should arrive during the second half of 2023.

In this guide, you will learn the steps to disable (and enable) Suggested actions on Windows 11 23H2.

Once you complete the steps, you will no longer see suggestions to create calendars, search the web, or make calls when you select and copy dates, times, and phone numbers.

After you complete the steps, when you copy a date, time, or phone number, Windows 11 will show an inline pop-up to perform a related action.
