Cortana is your personal digital assistant. It is designed to help you get things done. It provides answers and completes basic tasks.

How to launch Cortana

Cortana - Windows 10

Launch Cortana by clicking the Cortana icon on the taskbar, or type “Cortana” on the search box.

To get started, type a question in the search box, or select the microphone and talk to Cortana.

Note: Typing works for all PC types but you need a mic to talk.

Sign In

Try setting a reminder

One of the tings Cortana can do is to give you reminders. She can remind you to do things based on time, places, or even people.

For example, type or say, “Remind me to congratulate Tanya the next time she calls.”

The reminder will appear when you get a call from Tanya.

Hey Cortana
