There are three points that need to be considered before trying this feature. This feature has come with April update (1803) of Windows 10.

How To Enable Text Suggestions In Windows 10?
Step 1: At first, you need to use “Windows logo key + I” shortcut. It will open Settings app. You can also take the help of Start menu to open this app.
Step 2: In Settings, select the “Devices” option.
Step 3: When Devices page is opened, select “Typing” menu on that page.
Step 4: On the right section of Typing menu, you will see many options. Just scroll down that list to access “Hardware keyboard” section. In that section, there is “Show text suggestions as I type” option. It will be turned off by default. Simply turn on that option.
You can also enable “Autocorrect misspelled words I type“, which is very fast and corrects the spellings pretty well. Or else, you can try some other free spell checker software for Windows 10.
That’s it! Text suggestions feature is now enabled. You can now open Notepad or some other application supported by this feature. When you will start typing, you will see suggestions. Three different suggestions are provided based on the text you’ve typed. You can use mouse click or arrow keys to select a suggestion and use it.
This is not a perfect feature and you might not like some suggestions provided by it. Still, the feature is introduced and it will improve with updates. If you are curious to try this feature, then simply activate it and see how it goes.
