Cortana not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I had recently upgraded to Windows 10 Home Edition Version 1511. I cannot access anything with regards to Cortana. It just remains highlighted as a grey dialog box on my task bar.

  • Those extra words after windows have meaning.

    MSDN stands for Microsoft DEVELOPER network.

    This is a bunch of forums aimed at supporting developers who work with Microsoft technologies.

    Windows Forms is a particular development technology.

    This is not an end consumer forum and it's not about just Windows.

    The wrong forum for your question.


    I normally have Cortana turned off, myself.

    If you type in Cortana into your "Search the web and windows" box.

    You should find an option with a cog next to it for settings.

    Choose that option to run it.

    If it says "Off" then switch it to "On".


    Also note.

    It doesn't work for all languages.

    And you need the right combination of language settings.

    Please see:


    And please ask any future consumer questions in a more appropriate forum.

    Hope that helps.
