How to enable Cortana in windows 10

One of the standout new features found in Windows 10 is the addition of Cortana. For those unfamiliar, Cortana is a voice-activated personal assistant. Think of it as Siri, but for Windows. You can use it to get weather forecasts, set reminders, tell you jokes, send email, find files, search the Internet and so on.

Follow these steps below to enable Cortana in windows 10

start cortana

Step 1: click in the search box located in the Taskbar, when the Search window comes up, click on the Notebook icon on the left side of the window

 start cortana 2

Step 2: click on the Settings icon.

start cortana 3

Step 3: There you'll find a button to enable Hey Cortana. Click on it to slide it to the On position.

You can now go about using your computer as you normally would, and whenever you need Cortana to perform a task, start by saying, "Hey, Cortana," followed by your command. I've found you have to continue with your command immediately after the activation prompt, instead of waiting for Cortana to load and indicate that it's listening.
