A:Cortana w10m AU question

Yes, you must download the relevant speech and language packs for each region
Difference would be each offers results closer to their own region rather than your current one - that's my opinion

I was wondering and curious about Cortana being toggled off in all of its settings to where it doesn't even show anymore in the Task Bar [Search took its place] yet it is still consuming anywhere from 30 to 40 Mbs of memory usage on a constant basis.

I realize that it is part an parcel tied to the Windows SearchUI mechanics yet if I'm not searching or surfing my OS why would it be using memory and what could it be 'searching' for?

How do I set Cortana to automatically detect my weather location?

She has asked me to enter my City for weather locations.

But, I want her to automatically detect my location instead of me having to do it by putting in my city.

Thanks in advance!

A:Question about Cortana: Weather and Location Reporting

1.) Be sure your Location is set On in Settings:


2.) Click the Notebook icon in Cortana:

3.) Enable Nearby Forecast:

4.) Cortana will now show the weather forecast for your current location:

On all my pc's I now have a "get cortana for my phone" message in all the cortana action windows. How in the heck do I get rid of this? it is screwing up all my viewing habits for weather, sports score etc.

Why does microsoft keep jamming all this junk in the cortana window, I don't want anything except what I choose to have displayed.

A couple weeks ago, we got an early look at Cortana in Windows 10 and thanks to the new leak of Windows 10 build 9901, we have a lot more to share about the new feature.
As you can see from the images in this post, in build 9901, Cortana is much more refined in her appearance and she appears to be more responsive on our install. More so, we can also dig into the settings of the feature and gain a better understanding of where the feature is headed.

There's a problem I can't understand. I downloaded four GBA emulators(VBA8, VBA10, Purple Cherry X, etc.) on my L640. I started a game Pokemon Emerald and was shocked. In every emu sound is distorted and makes headaches, in VBA8 fps is lower than 45fps, in VBA10 and Purple Cherry X - lower than 40 and 30 fps. By the way, VBA10 makes phone really hot, although fps is lower, sound is even worse quality and app is made for W10M so all this makes no sense, because VB8 on W10M works miles better, but it's still unacceptable. Why? Because my old PSP with 333MHz processor and 64 MB RAM emulated GBA games almost perfectly.
Okay, there could be some reasons like bad coding and small number of WP/W10M users, but, come on, even GBC games (like Pokemon Crystal) on those WP/W10M GBA emulators are not emulating great, sound is distorted too, but, at least, are listenable. But no excuses, because I emulated pokemon crystal on my iPod Nano 1st gen. which has 80MHz cpu and there is no sound distortion at all... All this just makes no sense.

A:Why emulation on W10M/WP is so bad?

It's simply because development is lacking. I hope that with the ability to port Win32 apps to the Store and all that, we get to see VBA-M soon enough.

Hello to all I wanted to ask around to anybody who might know if Living Images is still a feature on W10M. I am not sure if I have missed anything about it, and I haven't heard much since last year when it showed up in some developer preview versions on certain phone models. I am really hoping it was not taken away from the Windows Mobile platform, as it was an awesome feature that Microsoft started (and which Apple stole). Does anybody know of it still exists on Windows 10 Mobile? Thanks for any information.

When i open any webpage in microsoft edge in my w10m (Lumia 640 xl with official w10m build 10586.218) and start to scroll up and down, the webpage stutters a lot and sometimes it becomes completely blank. The only way to get that webpage to normal is by entering the tabs view and then re-opening the current tab or zoom in and out inside that webpage. I have been facing this issue since a long time (since insider build 10586.63). Did a hard reset couple of times after updating to newer builds but that didn't help. Therefore rolled back to the official release but the issue is still there. Is anyone here facing this problem and is there any fix for this problem?

Any ideas what can be done? try a soft reset: Soft Reset is holding the Volume Down & Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). This rebbots the phone with a cleared out RAM and Cache. No data is lost. It is good for when the phone freezes or you experience a glitch of some sort.
Then check for app updates in store

Now as to your question on it/her, in Windows 10, Cortana is a web search/system & folder search tool, that can be used by voice or text(typing). Like any search tool, you need to be more specific, and if using voice, Cortana needs to be trained. Also when cleaning your system(browser and OS) you need to make sure you DO NOT clean MS search or browser history, so Cortana can learn your interest's, and you can benefit from the advanced search algorithm.

I've just activated Cortana but not having much luck.

Is there a guide anywhere as to what can/can't be done with the app?

For example, I added some things to my calendar, and asked if there was anything in there for today (both spoken and typed question).

When spoken, all I get in response is: 'Something's not right. Try again in a little bit'.

When typed, a search is performed, but no documents are found.

It's quite possible I'm totally misunderstanding how Cartana works, but I would have thought that searching my calendar would be fairly basic.

Have searched but can not find a clear answer. Will Cortana open websites? From what I read, it will providing the website is bookmarked and pinned. Is this correct?
If the website requires login, eg eBay, will Cortana do the login for you? Since Edge will be able to save usernames and passwords, it seems possible. Eg, can I say "Hey Cortana, open eBay" and the eBay login page opens. Then can I say, "Hey Cortana, login to eBay" or will I have to click the login button?

Hi Artbuc From what I can read, Cortana could already open websites by voice on Windows 8.1 for Phone, so I don't know why the Cortana on Windows 10 couldn't do a such thing http://www.windowscentral.com/how-open-websites-voice-cortanaAs for the login, you can use Cortana to login on Facebook apparently, but I don't know for the other websites.https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/how-to/wp8/cortana/cortanas-settingsAlso, saving passwords locally in a browser is a security risk, so I wouldn't do that. I would use a password manager instead like LastPass.

Hey there insiders, since i got the new update i have been experiencing issues while using cortana. one of the major issues i have noticed is that my laptop is connected to my network. but for some reason only cortana will no communicate with the internet. i have check all the network settings to try and troubleshoot this issue, as well as rebooting and everything else. wasn't sure what happened over night but then i looked into my update history and saw i got a new update last night. which would make sense why all of a sudden this morning cortana stopped working. i was just curious if anyone else has been having the same issues. i reported this issue on the hub as a problem in the cortana other feedback tab in the hub if anyone is having the same issues please upvote and help resolve this issue. thank you

This started two days ago: Whenever I click on the taskbar search box, Cortana pops up, as always; but now, instead of just showing my local weather, there is a message, "Get Cortana on your phone", with links for Android, Windows Phone, and iPhone.
I tried a clean boot, in case it was some third party software causing it, but that isn't the case. Chatting with MS 'Support' was useless; she didn't have a clue. She thought I needed to sync my phone.
The message does disappear as soon as I start typing in the search box, but it's still annoying. I'm running Windows 10 Home, build 10586. The Anniversary update didn't trigger this; I installed that a few weeks ago. Oh, and I did try clicking on the Android link, and installed the app on my phone, thinking that might get rid of the message: no such luck.
Any ideas ...?

A:Anyone else getting Cortana spam?

No, because people go into the top hamburger button and turn that stuff off, along with going into System settings and uncheck any check boxes in the various sections to not share info, etc.

If you do not want or need a Windows live account, you can run Windows 10 with a local and only have the live account for updates.

Hi. Has this happened to anyone else?
I had set up Cortana for use in the UK, downloaded the language and speech components.
Everything was working fine and then the latest update restarted my computer and Cortana needed set up again.
I am in the process of downloading the components again.

A:Update and Cortana

I'm really starting to hate Windows 10.
Ok, so after setting up Cortana again, now the search function doesn't work, I just get a big empty grey box.

And things are slow too.
Its driving me nuts. Its not as if I even did anything! The update happened by itself and now I have issues.

Over the last couple of days I have found Cortana's 'Ask Me Anything' search box will not work. I can type nothing in. From inspection of other people's problems with Cortana it seems the trouble is often associated with Start Menu malfunction. In my case however I have no problem with the start menu.
Can anyone advise me how to overcome this annoying problem?
PS The Windows 10 updates are all installed.

A:Cortana not working.

Suggestions only :

1. You said " Over the last couple of days ". If that is the fact, do a system restore. Pick a date when Cortana was working , or at least a week ago as your restore point.

2. If that does not help. Try this troubleshooting method..............
Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.
Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
sfc /scannow

> press Enter.
It will take quite sometime.
When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
1. No integrity violation.
2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
If the report is #3, use this method................
In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

> press Enter.
Again it will take some time.
When finished, it will give you a report.

3. Create another user account with exactly the same privileges > log on to it and see if Cortana will work.

Hi folk. For my first post I thought Id pose a question relating to my lack of sound from Cortana. I am not sure why but I get no sound when I am setting it up. during setup you are asked what Cortana is to call you. After putting in my name there is then a button to click to find out if it is pronounced correctly. But all I get is silence. I'm getting sound ok from games etc so its obviously something Ive overlooked. Anyone able to help out please? (I'm using build 10049).
If I go to system -> Cortana & search -> customise Cortana & search settings it does not do anything. No new window opens or extra details - nothing.

A:No sounds from Cortana

Your post is very old but I just had the same problem. In my case two different audio systems were plugged in.
1) External speakers plugged into the green jack on my computers rear.
2) My display has built in audio speakers connected by HDMI.

A Google search revealed that Cortana will not make any sounds when two different audio systems are plugged in.

Right Click on the sound icon in the right side of your taskbar and go to Playback devices.
Right Click on one device and select DISABLE to Disable the Digital output that you?re not using then Restart your computer.

I am only posting this solution because no other solution was posted.
I hope my post might help others in the future.

Another solution was offered but I did not need to use it. (see below)

Reset Cortana

Maybe resetting Cortana to its default settings can solve the problem. Here?s what you need to do to completely reset Cortana in Windows 10 - Open Cortana and go to Settings. The first button allows you to disable Cortana, so just disable Cortana with that button. It says: ?Turning off Cortana clears what Cortana knows on this device, but won?t delete anything from the Notebook. After Cortana is off, you can decide what you?d like to do with anything still stored in the cloud?.
Restart your computer and enable Cortana again

This will make Cortana completely forget about all your settings, so it would act like you just installed Windows, so maybe the solution for sound problem with Corta... Read more

Hello
I have been trying to solve this by myself and in doing so found many people with the same issue. As soon as I put Cortana 'ON' the light to the camera/mic stays on. I don't think I am being spied upon but a light can only stay on so long before it is, so long.
I am now using Google with voice search but I would think Cortana should work when enabled w/o the light staying on.
I have a usb Creative mic/camera for the desktop and a built in for the laptop.
I am trying to use Win 10 fully, but find 'photo', 'mail' etc to be inferior to Win essentials and previous products. There is no video editor unless you use the old Windows dvd app but that has limitations and needs codecs to be imported. It seem the technology is either cheaper or poorly designed. I can see Linux taking over if this trend continues because the apps are getting less functional. The numerous options are dazzling regarding privacy and would take a etch to know which to enable, or not.

Anyway, what is causing this lite issue and is there a solution or reasonable answer?
Thank you

I discovered recently that Cortana had been corrupted on one of my systems. There was no ?search? function, or anything else. I tried everything I could find on line to fix it, but no joy.

As a last resort I re-installed Windows 10 (latest download). While that solved the Cortana problem, it also introduced a network one that has yet to get resolved.

To solve the (more important) network situation, I reverted to the previous C-drive image and am again without the Cortana service.

Has anyone else had a problem with Cortana, and/or perhaps an idea about how to restore the functionality?

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

A user called "yamivalkri" replied to "kojak", stating that Cortana WAS available for Windows 7 before Windows 10 was released. Is this accurate? And if so, where can I get it? The link in the description apparently is a trojan, and I can't test it with a VM. (No Virtualization in processor)

I upgraded my Surface Pro to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1. Ever since then I have had issues with Cortana. I seem to solve them and then Microsoft releases another forced update and it gets all flaky again. Right now, I can say "Hey, Cortana" and it will hear me and show "listening" with all the letters flying by. But it can't hear my request and then tells me something is wrong. No kidding. Since I still have the ISO of Windows 8.1 on here there are no system restore points. That is what I would do first. Strangely, I have a Dell two in one that came with Windows 10 and I had to fight to get Cortana to work on there too but now it seems stable. I would surely appreciate any tips or fixes. Even if they're only temporary and have to be done over and over. I doubt I can be the only person having this problem. Thanks in advance.

One of the most basic and fundamental questions a person may ask cortana is what's the date.
So let's try it. "what's the date today" I can't connect at the moment, try again in a little bit. "What's todays date" I can't connect at the moment, try again in a little bit.
How is this even possible that such a simple, basic fundamental question makes Cortana say she cannot connect?

How is this even possible that such a simple, basic fundamental question makes Cortana say she cannot connect? When cortana doesn't undestrand a thing, she says "I'm sorry, I don't undestand" or brings you to Bing directly.
"I can't connect " means there's a internet problem.
Asking Date or Time to Cortana, normally brings to Bing since Win8.1

Lately , Cortana has been been MIA and I have seen nothing as to what is happening or how to fix it . Inexplicably today it has reappeared and all systems seem normal . Just the fact that Cortana is missing doesn't bother me but along with that it also means I can not access Control Center or apps . When shutting down , the only option is to CTRL - ALT - Delete to shut it down and this can take a few tries sometimes which is hugely frustrating , especially when you are in a hurry to leave and don't want to leave things running . Does anyone either , know why this ? Or has it happened to you in the past ? It seems very odd that it goes missing for over a week and then just magically reappears like nothing ever happened . Anyone ?

A:Cortana and Startup

Hello, erratic problems can be much harder to track down, and ones with no error message or precise and consistent symptoms very difficult to research.

So there was a time in the past when all was well.
Had you periodically used disk imaging, you could have restored an image from a date at which you didn't have the problem, so I'm assuming you haven't yet 'graduated' to using that invaluable tool, which allows you to restore your PC without technical help. (Hint )

So: some basic possibilities:
- corruption (disk/files)
- some change you've made which interferes with the OS
- settings
- sthg installed

So, I suggest you establish a base line:
1. Run
chkdsk C: /F
from an admin command prompt (Windows key + X, Command prompt (admin) )
(It's essential to know your disk is ok before undertaking repairs).

If that's ok
- Try a clean boot.
If the symptoms remain,
- See what happens in Safe Mode

Please report what you find with those.

Alas, Cortana is busy. I noticed for the first day or so after installing Windows 10, she ran slowly, was unresponsive, and was generally unavailable.  After she had time to index all my mail, scan my pc for any contraband, and upload my porn to Bill she now responds in a timely fashion.
 
During the first few days of Windows 10 rollout, the problems were server side, but I believe she is answering all questions now.
 
Also, turn on Windows Search if you have it disabled.

hi, I am absolutely upset by this. I just received my brand new lap top from Dell this morning and when I go to Cortana she ask you to sign into your Microsoft account so she can do more (like voicing etc) unfortunately when i click sign in I get a square black empty box just sits there. 
I have called dell was told I have to pay $129.00 for them to help me one time only or pay another $200.00 for software warranty.
It's suppose to be included in windows 10 and have had it maybe 3 hours at this point have had it since 9:00 a.m. this morning Haven't done anything just letting it set up.
I'm on my Dell all in one desk top and I bought it also brand new  about little over a year and Cortana works perfectly on it. it was windows 8.1 and i got the free windows 10 download for it.

So if anyone out there can help me as I'm ready to call them tell them send me a return label and skip a lap top all together. I had both miss my lap top this one was on sale got it for $242.00
Also tried Microsoft support tech but nope they say Dell should go good for it.and Dell said the software isn't put in by them not warranted only the hardware.
Thank you in advance
