  1. What is Cortana running on my kid's computer?


    I am trying to figure out Cortana's purpose and if I can block it. I saw another post from 2017 with the same parent concern and the question had been moved to "Surface". I searched "Surface" and it's not there either. SO, this is a big mystery. If I block Cortana, will it interfere with other programs? Is this some work around she has to get to websites or apps that I normally have on block?

    :)

    Cortana Notebook

    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.

    Windows Phone 8 - Kids Corner Backdoor to Internet

    • Is there a way to dissable access to Internet Explorer entirely from within Kids Corner?
    This way if a game has a link to a webpage or youtube video the kid pressing that button can't get to it.



    I will post the suggestion at the feature suggestions page. But to me this sounds more like a flaw in the Kids Corner coding and should be patched.

    • Is there another forum I should post to in order to raise additional awareness?

    [WINDOWS 10] Cortana not using voice to respond

    Hi,

    Are you able to hear other sounds from your computer?

    I would suggest that you run a SFC scan and check. Follow the below steps :

    • Press Windows + X
    • Click Command prompt (Admin)
    • Type sfc /scannow
    • Press Enter

    Check if issue still occurs with Cortana.
