Microsoft removed Copilot from Windows Server 2025

Some of us like to play with Copilot on Windows 11, but let’s face it, it’s not the most useful tool on a Windows Server 2025 machine.

After the Windows Server 2025’s launch, a Windows insider posted a screenshot on X showing Copilot running on Windows Server 2025, Build 26063.1.

The admins discovered the feature in shock and wondered if it was a mistake from Microsoft’s part.

A month later, the same Bob Pony broke the news that most admins wanted to see: Copilot is gone in Windows Server 2025’s Build 26085.

Now, we still have a lot of questions because in Microsoft’s announcement about Windows Server 2025 there is absolutely no information about Copilot and the fact that they’ve removed it.

So, was it a simple mistake to include Copilot in the first place in Windows Server? In Windows 11’s Insider Preview Build 26085, many of the users didn’t get Copilot yet because it’s rolling gradually based on the region. Is it the same for Windows Server 2025 and the admins will have another surprise to find Copilot once again?

This is yet to be uncovered but Microsoft didn’t say anything about this whole story yet.

As an admin, do you want Copilot on your Windows Server 2025 data center? Tell us about that in the comments section below.
