    Cortana goes away


    I've been running Windows 10 for about a week and I enjoy the quick access to Bing search. But frequently, usually after an overnight hibernation, Cortana simply becomes "unavailable". I click on the box and nothing happens! I have to reboot the machine to get it working again.

    I did some online research and discovered that Cortana could be affected by the Windows 10 Geolocation Service and it now is an automatically started service on my system. That didn't solve the problem.

    I would appreciate any other suggestions to get Cortana more reliable.

    :)

    "Get Cortana on your phone."

    It would appear that Microsoft wants people to get Cortana on their phones. Understandable. I hit acknowledge on the message and it goes away.. until I open Cortana again. Then the message is there again. It's pretty annoying to see it every time I open
    Cortana. How do I make this message go away and stay away other than not using Cortana?

    When I press the microphone button to trigger voice commands, the microphone quick goes away, not allowing me to say anything to Cortana, is this an issue with anyone else computer?

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum

    I have had the same a few times, unfortunately I don't know a fix, but a quicker way than restarting the machine is to look for Cortana in taskmanager, then do an End Task on it

    It starts back up on its own and then works

    Not ideal, but its a quicker way to get it going again

    A quicker solution is to log out the user and in again instead of restarting the PC.
