  1. Cortana--


    Cortana is the most valuable part of my pc and has been working perfectly. It doesn't work any more. I have a spy glass icon visible but not the circle icon and cannot type to ask to search for an item. Can you help please? I'm lost without this function.


    Thank you

    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.
