  1. I can not find Cortana setttings

    In my previous computer there was an part for Cortana to customize Cortana in settings. Now even I type in search box and there is no such a thing like Cortana settings. Besides I can not set default apps for cortona. When I say "Play music" the response is like "I'm sorry, I can't control your music here." So could you please help me to fix it.

    Ps: My location and region is set as US. I have tried to fix Cortana with Powershell but it did not worked as well.

    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.
