    Cortana


    I upgraded my Asus laptop to the new Windows 10 after getting a windows update notification saying to download the new windows update as the old version is soon to be no longer supported? Anyways, after doing so, I noticed Cortana is completely different how it looks like when it pops up and no longer responds to commands like it used to. Whenever I say "Hey Cortana" and say a command, it ends up searching it online instead of doing the command like it used too in the old update.

    :)

    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.
