OpenAI’s ChatGPT kickstarted an artificial intelligence (AI) revolution with its launch last fall.

The ChatGPT model is certainly not overrated; users are coming up with creative ideas for prompts, such as asking questions in search of funny answers, creating content, improving their writing or Excel skills, finding and correcting a bug in code, or summarizing a book. Some wonder if the AI chatbot could replace programmers, writers, and even doctors, and how it could revolutionize different industries.

Across all these areas, one thing is abundantly clear: What makes this AI tool remarkable isn’t how innovative the idea of it is but how it does an excellent job at generating text and how accessible and easy to use it is. ChatGPT can hold conversational text interactions with users, and these exchanges can feel as natural as if you’re having a conversation with another person — a really, really well-informed person.

3. Become familiar with the ChatGPT window

Once you’ve logged into your OpenAI account on the ChatGPT side of the website, it’s time to get to know the AI tool’s window. Here’s a breakdown of what you will see, with the image below as an example: 

1.New chat & hide sidebar buttons: On the left-hand side of your screen, you’ll see a button for New chat that you can click on to start a new conversation at any time. This is useful because the ChatGPT model remembers what was previously discussed in a conversation and will respond with context, so starting a new chat will start a new conversation without prejudice or context. 
2.Chat history: The left sidebar also keeps all your previous conversations accessible, in case you need to go back to one, though there is the option for turning off chat history. Here you can edit the title of each chat, share your chat history with others, or delete it.
3.Account: Clicking on your e-mail address or name on the bottom left of your screen will give you access to your account information, including settings, the option to log out, and help and FAQ from OpenAI. If you don’t have ChatGPT Plus, you’ll also see an Upgrade to Plus button here.

4.Your prompts: The questions or prompts you give the AI chatbot appear here.
5.ChatGPT’s responses: Whenever ChatGPT responds to your queries, the logo will appear on the left. The Copy, Thumbs up, and Thumbs down buttons appear to the right of each response. You can copy the text to your clipboard to paste elsewhere and also provide feedback on whether the response was accurate or not. This process helps fine-tune the AI tool
6.Regenerate response: If you have issues getting a response in the chat or don’t get a satisfactory answer, you can click on Regenerate response to prompt ChatGPT to try again with a new answer for the latest prompt.

7.Text area: This is where you enter your prompts and questions; just hit enter to send them.

8.ChatGPT version: OpenAI includes a bit of fine print below the text input area, where you can read the disclaimer that this is a “Free Research Preview. ChatGPT may produce inaccurate information about people, places, or facts”. There is also the version of the ChatGPT model you’re currently using.

ChatGPT prompt examples

ChatGPT can generate responses to prompts (a feature that could eventually challenge search engines) that are enough to become an important tool for content generation from writing essays to summarizing a book for you, but it can also write and fix code, make calculations, help you compile your resume, translate information, and more. Here are examples of prompts you could start with:
