  1. Cortana has become stupid after the last update.


    After the last update, I have had problems with Cortana. Eventually, I figured out how to turn the microphone back on, but Cortana has become stupid. No mater what I ask, Cortana says, "Sorry, I can't help with that." It no longer knows the date, time or any jokes. It cannot even tell what its problem is.

    :)

    In order to enable the Notebook icon in Cortana, I suggest you to check if you have enabled Cortana.

    To enable Cortana, please follow the steps below:

    • Go to Cortana.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Turn on “Cortana can give you suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts”.

    Hope this helps.
