  2. Cortana will not let me sign into my Microsoft account

    No I did not find this helpful. it led me in circles.

    Cortana will not let me sign in with my microsoft account.


    Cortana Experience with O365

    outlook.com isn't in our system

    Make sure you typed your email address correctly. It usually looks like *** Email address is removed for privacy *** or *** Email address is removed for privacy ***

    I have signed in with *** Email address is removed for privacy ***, which is my Microsoft account log in

    Do package confirmation emails have to be sent to your inbox for cortana to pick them up?

    I recently switched my emails over to outlook.com from gmail but Cortana is no longer automatically tracking my packages. I use a couple of sub email addresses and so I have created a rule to sort emails, to those addresses, to their respected folders.
    My question is if my shipping confirmation emails are being sorted to those specific folders and not my inbox folder will Cortana not be able to automatically find them and track them?

    can cortana find emails by address ?

    Cortana searching your files and folders is limited to what you've indexed in Windows search. As such it's dependent on what you've indexed, and Windows search capabilities.

    You have to be using an email client which stores email on your PC. If you use web mail - no chance of it being seached.

    If you use Outlook 2010 for email, then Windows search can probably help, but apparently Outlook 2013 (and presumably later) are not supported.
    Search Outlook 2013 emails using Start Menu Windows Search

    This indicates Thunderbird (free client) is supported. (I've not tried it personally, using Thunderbird itself to search email)
    ThunderBird: Allow Windows Search to Search Messages

    Personally I rarely use Cortana, using the highly configurable Classic Shell (free) for my start menu with its own configurable search capability, and for my files and folders, a very fast indexing search tool that finds any file anywhere instantly.

    Please try searching for
    Windows 10 hotkeys
    Lots of results.
