Cortana is a popular new feature of Windows that comes equipped with the new, efficient Windows 10. It is a personal assistant that is voice activated and can be used to accomplish basic tasks that would otherwise take a long time. Cortana can be used to send emails, check the weather, play music or just engage in simple funny conversations.
The feature can be found in the left bottom corner of the screen. A white circle with the words Ask me anything printed next to it. To enable its function it has to be manually selected first.
To make Cortana purely voice activated:
1. Click the search box so that the Cortana dialog box appears.
2. Click the menu icon (three stripes) in the upper right corner.
3. Select Notebook >Select Settings> Toggle "Let Cortana respond to 'Hey Cortana.'" to On.
In these easy steps Cortana can be called merely by saying Hey Cortana into the microphone and follow that by a command of any sort.
While Cortana is a highly helpful feature, there are people who would prefer to not have the application. Cortana can access your search history and files, this could be problematic to those who crave privacy.
To disable Cortana on your device:
NOTE:This requires editing the registry, so remember to backup first and proceed with carefully when attempting this fix.
I. Open regedit the registry editor, from the search box on the taskbar.
II. If asked, allow the program to make changes to your computer.
III. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search
(Windows Search might not be there)
IV. Right-click the Windows folder and choose New>Key. Call it "Windows Search."
V. Right click "Windows Search" and choose New > DWORD (32-bit Value).
VI. Name the DWORD "AllowCortana."> Click it and make sure the value is "0.
Restart the computer (or log out and log back in). Cortana will be replaced with a regular search bar that can be typed into in order to search for files.
