So what is Suggested actions and how it work in Windows 11? Whenever you select or copy a date, time, phone number, and anything related, Windows will suggest smart actions related to it.
For example, if you select the date, it will suggest you create a calendar even, if you select a phone number, then suggest you create a call or schedule a call on a particular day or even more. These suggestions will appear on a tiny flyout shown in below screenshot:
The Suggested action flyout contains various apps that can do anything valid related to the content you have copied. If you select a phone number, it will show apps like Phone Link, Teams, and related. If you select Date, it will show you apps like Outlook Calendar and related.
