Can I Get Cortana?

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 10

Joan has a question about Cortana. “Will Cortana be available on my laptop or will that just be for smart phones?”


Joan, Cortana is front and center on your Windows 10 PC and an important part of the operating system. “She” is also included on Windows 10 smartphones and you can download a Cortana app for your Android phone.  (Though I’m not a huge fan of how it performed on my Galaxy S4.)

You will need to take the free upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 in order to use Cortana.

    Cortana ruined my search bar (it stopped working) and I had to spend several hours with Microsoft to get my computer (brand new with Windows 10) to work properly. I would love to use Cortana but after what happened when I “invited” her in, I am more that a little leery.
