    Why doesn't cortana anticipate the sensical word that will come next? The display won't even give me a word that starts with the letter I typed in! I thought that it would eventually learn the structure of the English language and the type of questions that I ask. I guess I was wrong.

    :)

    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.
