  1. Cortana Installation


    I am from Sri Lanka and wanted to install Cortana on my Dell laptop, so I went to the Microsoft Store to download and install Cortana, but there was a notice saying that Cortana is currently unavailable. Why is the notice popping up, and how can I resolve the issue?

    :)

    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.

    Cortana's bug

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Cortana might have been hidden, you can enable Cortana by following the below mentioned steps:

    1. Right click on the taskbar and click on Cortana.
    2. Select the option Show search box or Show Cortana icon.

    However, you can follow the troubleshooting steps from
    Troubleshoot problems with the Start menu or Cortana
    .

    NOTE: The last step in the article mentioned is to Reset the PC. Resetting the PC will remove the data and programs/applications installed on the computer. We suggest you to take a data backup if you want to reset the PC.

    If the above steps didn’t help you fix the problem, reply to the following questions:

    • Since when are you facing this issue?
    • Have you made any changes to the computer recently?

    Hope it helps.
