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.

    Thanks

  • 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:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/cortanas-regions-and-languages

    .

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


    Hope that helps.
