  1. Cortana doesn't open up as a domain user (Windows 10 Pro)


    Hi everybody,

    I am having problems with Cortana opening up on a domain connected PC, I haven't yet tested this problem out on to multiple domain accounts but I have tested it on a local account on the computer and it works fine. With the local account on the computer, everything works fine. So, when I open Cortana on the taskbar whilst logging into a domain account - the Cortana bar disappears and reappears after a second.

    Not just Cortana I just tested on a domain account, I have tested out the Store app - sometime this crashes and closes just after a minute.

    So, what I might be thinking is that the operating system is not supported on to the domain controller (which I am running Windows Server 2012 R2) and not allowing as many features to be used via the policy. In the Server 2012 R2 policy only applies for computers that use Windows 2000 to Windows 8.1 Pro.

    Thank your for reading!

    Best Regards,
    Ben

  3. Group policy "Allow cortana = disabled" not working

    Using 10 pro on a domain.

    Yesterday my domain admin set "allow Cortana = disabled" in GPO - my client picked it up correctly and Cortana refused to work.

    This morning it's working again. The GPO hasn't changed ("Allow Cortana" is still "Disabled") and GPResult shows that setting being implemented... But Cortana's not disabled.

    Any ideas?
