  2. Cortana - Something went wrong. Try again in a little bit.

    I did it but no change. The issue persist.
    I also tried on other PC with windows 10 and the same. Is there any way to reset my Microsoft account, because here I see the issue?

    Cortana - "Something went wrong. Try again in a little bit."

    I have tried resetting Cortana without any positive result.

    Since I use my pc in different languages, and Cortana worked FINE in everything but English (US), I checked the optional features for speech recognition.

    Even if the Language pack for English (US) was installed, the text-to-speech and speech recognition features were missing in my case! So she could hear me, displayed her text in English, but could not process my voice input due to the missing feature.

    Check the following settings:

    A) First that all necessary files are installed:

    Go to Settings > System > Apps & features > (on link above) "Manage optional features".

    You should see per installed language:

    - English (US) handwriting (maybe only if on a tablet)

    - English (US) optical character recognition

    - English (US) speech recognition

    - English (US) text-to-speech

    - English (US) typing.

    Add them if necessary - I recommend doing one by one - and reboot your pc.

    B) that they are properly selected

    - Go to Settings > Time & Language > Region & language > Set to United States as region and English (US) as default language (the keyboard input can be from a different country, in case you are not using US hardware keyboards). Also check the additional
    date, time and regional settings

    - Go to Settings > Time & Language > Speech > English (United States) and possibly Text-to Speech to Zira Mobile.

    Apply and (if your pc was on a different language before) reboot.

    For me that solved the issue. Hope it works for you!

    Nice. I have a 10 desktop folder that needs more wallpapers for my shuffle. I like the one with the crane in the clouds. And the one with the hidden ten is cool also. Thanks for the heads up Brink.

    I'd probably cut off the "I'm a Win Insider" logo before using them.
