    Windows Cortana Not responding to any working Mic


    Hi Guys

    Windows Cortana is not responding to any working Mic.
    I am on 1803 OS Build 17134.48 I have followed all the pages I can find on here.

    Nothing works but my MIcs are fine I have even tested them with online mic checkers.
    The mic setup works fine but it will not hear.
    I am logged in as a Microsoft account as well

    I have noticed Cortana Location service greyed out turn off in Windows 10 Creators Spring Update.
    I cannot turn it back on so I am guessing this might be something to do with it. All the other setting are on.
    Are you signed into Cortana with your Microsoft account?(top of Notebook page)
