Why isn’t cortana available on my windows 10 pc

Make sure that the selected country corresponds to the Windows display language configured in the Language settings. If you are not in the US, it seems that you need to download and install the additional language pack for SPEECH (it definitely applies to the UK and possibly applies to all other English-speaking countries as well). Cortana is available in many languages and will likely be disabled on your computer if the language is not supported. The first is to use a language that Cortana works in, and the second is to install Cortana from the Microsoft Store.

How do I fix Cortana on Windows 10?

If the Windows 10 Update or an earlier update is installed, reset Cortana to reset Windows Search by following these steps:

  1. Select Start, right-click Cortana, select More, and then select App settings.

Cortana can do much more than answer questions and help with searches. Here’s a quick setup guide and a quick summary of what it can do for you. The first thing to know is that Cortana needs your permission to help. By default, Cortana doesn’t listen to your commands.

Click inside the search box and then open settings. Check your mic to make sure Cortana can hear you by clicking on “Check the microphone” and follow the steps. Next, enable the “Hey Cortana” option; this will allow Cortana to respond when you say “Hey Cortana.” You can also have Cortana respond when your device is locked; just turn this option ON.

Here you can also enable Cortana to access your calendar, email, messages, and Power BI data when your device is locked by ticking the box. You should also assist Cortana by choosing the proper language for your region. To go even further, use the other options and decide on features to enable within Permissions & History and Across my Devices, in which you can sync phone notifications and texts.

Take advantage of Cortana’s full potential by customizing many other features. Click on the search box and then click on the notebook icon. If necessary, you may need to sign in or sign in again. Now click the Manage Skills tab to access an array of customization options. Connect your accounts, apps, and other services to Cortana. Get more personalized experiences from the likes of LinkedIn, Skype, and Gmail.
