Bing allows you to stop AI responses on search results unlike Google, and here's how.

  • To disable Copilot responses on Bing search, from a search result page on Bing, click the menu button from the top-right and turn off “Copilot response on result page” and “Scroll to open Copilot.”

On Bing, it’s now possible to disable those Copilot responses on every search result, and in this guide, I will show you how to complete this configuration.

Although AI may help you get answers quicker in some instances, more often than not, Copilot, like every other chatbot AI, does not produce accurate responses. Since not everyone uses search in the same way, Bing has added a couple of settings to stop AI responses in search results and disable the scroll-up feature that opens the Copilot interface on the web.

This is a good approach from Microsoft and totally different from Google, which recently launched its “AI Overview” feature to show AI-generated responses on search results. However, Google does not provide an option for users to turn this feature off unless the resource provides a workaround to block AI results using the web filter option.

In this guide, I will teach you the easy steps to disable AI responses on search results on Bing whether you use Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, or another browser.

Disable Copilot responses for search results on Bing

To turn off Copilot responses on Bing searches, use these steps:

  1. Open Bing.

  2. Perform a search for any query.

  3. Click the main menu from the top-right corner.

  4. Click on Copilot Settings to expand the menu.

  5. Turn off the “Copilot response on result page” toggle switch.

  6. Turn off the “Scroll to open Copilot” toggle switch.

Once you complete the steps, the search engine will no longer show AI responses, and scrolling the search results up will not open the Copilot interface.

However, this action only turns off the automatic responses. The page will continue to show entries to access Copilot at the top of the page, on the sidebar, and at the bottom.
