    How can I slow down Cortana's response to a question? I only get 1/2 a question out and if I pause 1-second Cortana is already researching the answer to only the portion of the question I intended to ask. Plus, Cortana doesn't understand Texan. Frustrating!!

    :)

    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.
