    I live in Belgium, I have no Cortana icon on my task line, and if I look via the Start icon, Cortana has not been installed on my laptop. Is it perhaps not functioning outside the USA ?

    :)

    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.
