  3. How do I get Foursquare back on Cortana

    Hi everyone

    I've got the Lumia 735 recently and to start with Cortana was offering to recommend places to eat using Foursquare. I never said yes to that but now it want it to give me recommendations it doesn't search with Foursquare. I have got the app now but would
    like to get Foursquare back on as the search engine for places to eat through Cortana

    Any ideas how to get this back? I'm in the UK.

    Get Cortana back on

    Hello Bob, *Smile

    You can use Cortana as is, but you would need to sign in to Cortana with your Microsoft account to use Cortana's personalization. You will still sign in to Windows 10 with your local account though. Signing in to Cortana with your Microsoft account doesn't switch your account used to sign in to Windows.

  7. Thank you for the suggestions. I have tried both. I rebooted after attempting each one and all i have his Windows search, no Cortana at all. I don't want to reinstall as this is on a dual boot configuration and I finally have the desktop the way I want it. I also have a few programs installed that I really don't want to go through with re-install if I would reset the computer.

    Again, thanks for the quick responses.
