  1. problem in fixing cortana

    How can i stop the full screen appearing when cortana is responding. So it takes the whole screen to say whatever results... But I don't like that. I rather speak with it but in the little rectangle at the lower left corner. However I don't know how to fix it.

    Hi Muhammad,

    What happens after that, do you get any error message? I suggest you to try to turn Cortana off and then try turning it on back and check if it starts.

    • 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.
    Also restart the PC to fix the issue. Let us know how it goes, we'll be glad to assist.

    Cortana's bug


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Cortana might have been hidden, you can enable Cortana by following the below mentioned steps:

    1. Right click on the taskbar and click on Cortana.
    2. Select the option Show search box or Show Cortana icon.

    However, you can follow the troubleshooting steps from
    Troubleshoot problems with the Start menu or Cortana

    NOTE: The last step in the article mentioned is to Reset the PC. Resetting the PC will remove the data and programs/applications installed on the computer. We suggest you to take a data backup if you want to reset the PC.

    If the above steps didn’t help you fix the problem, reply to the following questions:

    • Since when are you facing this issue?
    • Have you made any changes to the computer recently?

    Hope it helps.
