    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.

    Hi Adam,

    It seems that Cortana is not yet enabled that's why you're unable to activate it. To enable it, please follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows key and select All apps.
    • Scroll down to Cortana and click it.
    • Select Use Cortana and click Yes.

    Once enabled, you can set Cortana to do some things for you. Check out the link,
    Make Cortana yours for more information.
