What You Need to Know About Using Cortana in Windows 10

Switching from Windows 7 to 10 can be a bit of a shock for any user. Without a doubt, Windows 10 is a much better experience overall.

Yet with so many changes, it can be quite confusing. Apart from learning how to use the Windows Store, a number of features have been moved around since the release of Windows 8.1.

No, you can ask the new digital assistant launched by Microsoft known as Cortana.

If you don’t know this already, Cortana is already placed on the taskbar and can be used to find both features as well as programs too.

Of course, you can find the information you want in Windows 10’s search function. So, if you don’t use Cortana, you can still use this feature to get your answers.

So, all you have to do is type in your question in the Cortana/Search box and the answer will show up right at the top of the results panel.

There are times when you won’t be able to find what you’re looking for with the words you type in. For this, try and change the phrasing a bit and it will still give the right information as a result.

For example, if you type in “Is this copy of Windows genuine?” or “Genuine windows”, you might not find the right answer. Yet typing in ‘Is Windows activated” does the trick.

Apart from this, you can search for both apps on your system as well as at the Windows Store. You don’t even have to open the Windows Store to find these apps.

As you will soon discover, it is very simple to use Cortana. Especially if you like Windows 10.
