  1. Possible issues with Cortana on Windows 10.


    I apologize for flying blind here (no screenshots). I was on a friend's computer at her house and I could not remember my password for Windows Forums.

    She has a budget laptop for work. She has 4GB of ram and running on an i3.

    I say possible issues with Cortana, because when I get on the task manager, 54% of her RAM is being used by general system processes, and Cortana is using over 100 megs of RAM, even though she never uses Cortana and the task manager shows it as disabled.

    Is there any way to make it so that Cortana is not using RAM while it's disabled? She does not have that type of RAM to go around.

    Thanks for your help.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    • Open Cortana.
    • Click the hamburger button in the top left of the window.
    • Go to settings and click on off.
    • Follow the same steps to turn it on.
    • Check if issue persists.
