How to customize ChatGPT’s instructions

Even though ChatGPT is the most well-known AI chatbot now in use, it is always picking up new skills and ways to communicate.

Among these is the custom instructions function, which was first made available in beta form the previous year. You may now customize the way that ChatGPT displays information to you as part of the free plan.

There is a ton of versatility in the custom instructions functionality to assist you more quickly receive the information you need without getting lost in the details or having to ask for more information, whether it be telling it your age, where you live, or what kind of work you perform.

According to OpenAI, they developed personalized instructions based on input from users in 22 different nations, which is a significant advancement in making sure the chatbot is still helpful to most people.

Custom instructions: what are they?

Put simply, it adds two more prompts, which then modify the way future prompts are answered, framing the answers in a certain way.

What personal information do you want ChatGPT to know in order to respond to you more effectively? is one of the two questions that pose these. And then How would you like ChatGPT to respond?.

The first is easy to respond; often, it consists of providing a brief description of your location, age, and occupation. I’m a writer and a computer specialist, for instance.

How to Customize ChatGPT Instructions

You must launch ChatGPT on your preferred web browser. I’m using Chrome for this, but the same instructions apply to other browsers, and you may use the free tier without needing to be on a subscription plan.

Click your name or profile picture in the lower left corner of ChatGPT after your browser has opened to view the menu.

Choose ‘Customize ChatGPT’ from the menu.

2. Allow Personalized guidance

Here, you can follow the two prompts to enter your own instructions. The aforementioned instances are visible.

For these instructions to be carried over from conversation to chat, you should also set the ‘Enable for new chats’ control box. You can ask for more generic answers without losing your previously saved customized instructions if you unswitch this.

Now that you know ChatGPT is committed to giving you the answers you want, you may respond to prompts with confidence.

It is important to note that ChatGPT no longer indicates whether custom instructions are active, as it once did. Therefore, that might be the reason why your answers seem a little too personalized. But once more, you can easily turn that off.
