Windows 10: How To Use Cortana

When new technology comes, new helpful tools are greeted to us. Technology has always been great at providing tools to help us in our day-to-day life. Currently, for Microsoft, Windows 10 is their new beautiful and powerful gem. Windows 10 started off on a rough, bumpy road but now, it stands as a strong, advanced operating system.

Along with Windows 10 comes a new little friend called Cortana. Cortana is essentially an artificial intelligence personal assistant for your computer. A sort of Siri on the famous iPhone device. Cortana was a very exciting feature which Microsoft made highly known pre-launch of the new operating system. So, if you’ve got Windows 10 and yet want to use Cortana or you’re thinking of getting Windows 10; check out this short video about Cortana…

So, what did we learn from this professional clip about Cortana?

  • Go to settings and ensure Cortana is activated.
  • Let Cortana respond to “Hey Cortana”.
  • Simply ask Cortana a question.


And there you have it! It’s that simple. Remember before questioning Cortana you have to start the conversation by saying “Hey Cortana” so Cortana knows you are addressing them. Then you follow up by asking whatever you wish. And you can literally ask anything you want whether it be about another country or the computer hardware.
