Microsoft is adding voice shortcuts to Windows 11.

The latest Canary build of Windows 11 (Preview build 26020) debuts the ability to create and map custom voice commands to one or more actions like opening a folder or triggering a key combination. Users start by saying “show voice shortcuts,” then clicking “Create Command.”

It’s a bittersweet update, though — WordPad won’t install on this build, signaling the true beginning of the end for the trusty, simple word processor.
