Cortana is included as an integrated part of the desktop in Windows 10. Cortana is one click away on the taskbar, helping you find the things you need while proactively bringing you information you care about. Cortana can help you search in Windows 10 for apps, settings, and files as well as searching the web. Cortana learns your preferences to provide relevant recommendations, fast access to information, and important reminders. You can access Cortana with your voice by clicking the microphone icon, then speaking to set reminders or ask about weather, sports, finance and other content from Bing. If youâ€™re really adventurous, go into Cortana Settings, enable hands free use to say â€śHey Cortana,â€ť and you wonâ€™t need to click on the microphone icon. Cortana can learn your preferences and provide smarter recommendations over time. You can manage Cortanaâ€™s Notebook to add interests from Bing like news, sports, finance and weather so Cortana can proactively offer recommendations and information for you. Keep in mind, Cortana is new to the desktop â€“ things might not work as expected.
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the ability of all users to turn on Cortana in Windows 10.
