    Cortana opens by itself ???


    Win 10 Home ver 1803 build 17134.81

    Lately when I sign in to my computer and leave it idle, Cortana will open by itself. Not immediately and I did not time it.
    It is in close proximity to my TV, and I usually have my TV turned on most of the time. No sure if this fact is relevant or not.
    Not a big deal, I can always click the X at top right to exit Cortana.
    Just wonder if this happens to anyone else, or is my laptop possessed ?
