    Cortana not recognising UK region setting

    Hi Laurence,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would like to inform you that as of now Cortana is only available for U.S.-English. Though search will work in all languages.

    I suggest you to change the Language and Region to English (United States), United States to explore Cortana.

    You may follow below steps to perform the same.

    • Press windows key + x
    • Open Control Panel.
    • If you’re in the standard view, open Clock, Language, and Region and then click Region.
    • In Region change the following settings:
      • Go to Formats tab and set format as English (United States).
      • Go to Location tab and set Home Location as United States.
      • Go to Administrative tab and set Current System Locale to English (United States).
    4. In Clock, Language, and Region, click Languages and make sure English (United States) is set as your primary language. If you don’t have the language install, click on Add a language, search for English (United States), install
    it, and set it as your primary.

    5. Re-boot your computer and you should now be able to use Cortana outside of the US.

    Hope these information helps, please get back to us for future support, we’ll be glad to assist you further.

    Use Cortana without changing region settings in Windows 10 Insider bui


    Use Cortana without changing region settings in Windows 10 Insider build 14322

    Cortana is getting more and more useful on Windows 10 devices, and we previously reported last week that the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 14322 brought a more convenient way to set reminders from photos or content from supported UWP apps. However, not all Windows 10 users are currently allowed to rely on the digital assistant as Cortana is still limited to 13 countries (USA, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, EU5, India, China and Japan).

    While users in unsupported countries could still access Cortana by changing region and language settings on their devices, that’s not exactly convenient to do. But a Reddit user named Denaxin just discovered that Cortana could be enabled without changing region and language settings on Windows 10 Mobile build 14322. We tested it on our own and we can confirm that it works, as you can see:
