How to Disable Suggested Actions when Copying data to Clipboard in Windows 11

October 21st, 2022 by Admin

When you copy a phone number, date or time from web browser, Notepad or other apps, Windows 11 will predict the suggested actions based on the clipboard contents, and you’ll see options to make a phone call or create a calendar event.

If you don’t want to be disturbed by suggested actions, you can turn off this feature with ease. In this tutorial we’ll show you 2 methods to disable suggested actions when copying data to clipboard in Windows 11.

Method 1: Disable Suggested Actions in Windows 11 via Settings App

  1. Use the Windows + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app. Select System on the left, and then click Clipboard on the right.

  2. Click the “Suggested actions” toggle to turn the feature off. Windows 11 should no longer show suggested actions based on the text you’ve copied into the clipboard.

Method 2: Disable Suggested Actions in Windows 11 via Registry Editor

  1. Open Registry Editor and browse to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SmartActionPlatform\SmartClipboard. In the right pane, right-click the empty space and select New -> DWORD (32-bit) Value.

  2. Name the DWORD as Disabled, and then double-click it and set its value data to 1 for turning off suggested actions.

    Whenever you need to enable suggested actions, just change its value data to 0.

  3. Close Registry Editor. Log off and then log back in to see the changes.

That’s it!
