  2. Cortana not working

    Hi,

    Just to ensure that the settings are configured correctly, please try the steps below.

    This issue may occur if location settings are not turned on for Cortana.

    To turn on location settings for Cortana, I suggest you to try these steps and check if it helps.




    • Click on Start Button and type Location in the search.

    • Open Location Privacy Settings.

    • Under the option "choose apps that can use your location" check if Cortana is turned on.

    • If not turn on and check if it helps.

    Cortana Duplicated Notifucations

    We suggest that you rebuild Cortana via PowerShell to restore any missing components on it that may cause the issue. Try it first on your laptop and check if the issue will persist. If the issue with the notification is resolved, you can mirror the same
    steps on your Surface.

    To rebuild Cortana, follow these steps:

    • In the Search box, type PowerShell.
    • Right-click on the result and select Run as administrator.
    • Copy and paste the command below to the PowerShell tool and press Enter:
      • Get-AppxPackage | % { Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register
        "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppxManifest.xml" -verbose }
    • Once done, restart your device to apply the changes.

    Let us know if the steps provided above works for you.
