Cortana – Sits at the bottom of your left side of the dock as a search engine for Windows 10. When activated she can search your whole computer and the web to find what you are looking for rather than spending the time fiddling around looking for stuff.

The more you interact with Cortana the more it can personalise your system. You can type a question or the name of what you looking for or you can use your mic and talk to her.

You can activate hey Cortana in your settings so she listens.

It comes in handy rather than typing and can be activated to say Hey Cortana so she is ready to listen and take your request.

Cortana can be used to set reminders, add calendar events, open Apps and so much more!
