  2. No Cortana Icon on Microsoft Edge

    Hi Praveen,

    It is possible that the Show search and site suggestions as I type option in Microsoft Edge isn't enabled which explains why the Cortana icon is not visible. To check, follow these steps:

    • Open Microsoft Edge.
    • Click the Menu button (...).
    • Click Settings.
    • Scroll down and click View advanced settings.

    • Turn on the toggle switch for the Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge
      option.

    • Turn on the toggle switch for the Show search and site suggestions as I type option.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

  4. Cortana, edge, and the stupid news

    Cortana

    Hi,

    It seems that Cortana is not configured to use Microsoft Edge. To ensure that Cortana will use Microsoft Edge, follow these steps:

    • Open Microsoft Edge.
    • Click the More (. . .) icon, then click Settings.
    • Scroll down and click View advanced settings.
    • Under Privacy and services, toggle on Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge.

    If Cortana still opens web pages using Internet Explorer, then we suggest that you restart your computer to apply the changes. Once your computer is up, try using Cortana again and let us know the result.

    Regards.
