    How to Connect or Disconnect Cortana to Gmail Account in Windows 10


    Cortana is your cloud-based personal assistant that works across your devices and other Microsoft services. Depending on the capabilities of your device and the version of Cortana youre using, Cortana can provide a range of features, some of which are personalized. Cortana on Windows is available in certain regions and languages. If Cortana isnt available for your Windows device, you can still search for files on your device in the search box on the taskbar. Cortana is also available on other platforms, such as Android and iOS, in select markets.

    Cortana works best when you sign in and let her use data from your device, other Microsoft services, and third-party services you choose to connect. To provide you with personalized experiences, Cortana learns from certain data about you, such as your searches, calendar, contacts, and location. Youre in control of how much data you share. If you choose not to sign into Cortana on Windows, you can still chat with Cortana and use her to help you search the web, documents stored in Microsoft services like OneDrive, and your Windows device. See the section about Windows Search in the Privacy Statement for more information. If you dont sign in, or you choose to sign out, your experiences will be more limited and they wont be personalized with your Cortana data. On iOS and Android devices, Cortana only works when you sign in.

    Cortana can provide you more value and personalized experiences when your accounts and services are connected.

    Microsoft has added the ability to connect your Gmail account from Google to Cortana. Like with other connected services, connecting your Gmail account will allow you to use Cortana to access information like your contacts, calendar details, and email content from Gmail to give you personalized experiences and relevant suggestions in Microsoft products that offer Cortana experiences.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

  3. Connecting Cortana to Gmail - won't pop up authentication dialog

    Hi WLagrue,

    Are you able to connect Gmail to Cortana before? If yes, you may disconnect your Gmail account to Cortana and re-connect it back after restarting your device. Here are the steps:

    Go to Cortana icon > Notebook icon
    Connect Cortana to Gmail Account in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    > Manage Skills > Accounts > Add a service
    > Gmail > Disconnect
    . To re-connect, go to Cortana icon > Notebook icon
    Connect Cortana to Gmail Account in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    >
    Manage Skills > Accounts > Add a service > Gmail > Connect > Enter e-mail address > Next > Enter
    Password > Next > Allow
    .

    If you continue to have this issue even after performing the above steps, please reply to this thread. The system will notify me so I can get back to you and provide you more answers.

    How to connect gmail to outlook in windows 10?


    I have been working for hours to try and figure out how to link my gmail account to outlook in windows 10, everything looks correct, username, password, 2 step verification turned off on gmails end, pop mail enabled on gmails end and yet all I get time after time is incorrect login and password identification.

    Even weirder, is on on occasion it will actually connect the gmail account to outlook in windows 10 but I can only send messages from gmail and not receive.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  6. Connecting Cortana to Gmail - won't pop up authentication dialog

    Thank you for the information.

    Is your Gmail account connected to the Mail app? If not, then I recommend performing a
    clean boot and starting your device on
    safe mode. It will Start Windows with minimal set of drivers and startup programs to avoid conflict with any
    third-party app that can affect the synchronization of Gmail to Cortana.

    Also, since you wanted to connect Gmail mainly because of calendar access, then you might want to consider syncing your Google calendar in Windows 10 device. To do that, here are the steps:

    1. Launch Calendar app.
    2. Settings (gear icon) > Manage Accounts > Add Account.
    3. Select Google when Add an account appears on the screen.
    4. Follow the on-screen guide and steps.

    Note: Even though Mail and Calendar apps appear to be separate, they are pretty well tied together. So, your Gmail messages and contacts are going to sync to the Windows Mail app, too.

    If you have additional questions, or if the issue persists after the troubleshooting steps above, please let me know by replying to this thread. This way, I'll get notified and respond back to you as soon as I can.
