On Windows 11 22H2, you can now enable an early preview of Suggested actions expected to arrive in October with the upcoming “moment” update. “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. Or 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.

If you want to get hands-on with the new feature, you can use a third-party tool known as “ViVeTool” created by Rafael Rivera and Lucas on GitHub to enable the new experience on your computer.

This guide will teach you the steps to turn on the tabs feature on Windows 11.
