Microsoft Edge: Ask Cortana

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Uncategorized, Using The Internet, Windows 10

If you have Cortana turned on in Windows 10, there’s a neat trick you can try in the Microsoft Edge browser.  If you’re reading an article online and come across something you need a definition for or would just like to know more about, there’s an easy way to get more information. Just click and drag to highlight the word or phrase. Then right click and select Ask Cortana from the drop-down menu.


A pane will open on the right side of the screen with a definition and images.


You can scroll down in the pane for even more information like related searches and recent news.
