    Using microphone in Windows 10


    Hello can anyone tell me how to give commands using a microphone in Windows 10? I know there's Cortana but I would like to ask google to search for an item.

    Thanks.

    You could install FireFox 40 and make it the default browser. No need for a plug-in. Works with CyberFox also.
