    microphone icon

    Hi all,,I have been trying to get Cortana working again as I had switched it off, but , I want to use it again and I can use the search box to get it but I cannot find the microphone icon to click on to speak to it.
    Can you help please
    I think it is supposed to be on the left side of the taskbar.
    Thanks Len

    Make sure Location is ON in Settings: Privacy: Location. This needs to be ON for Cortana to work.
