    Defaults for what exactly? I can only guess what you're talking about in terms of what you'd like to know the default settings for.

    Assuming you mean the privacy settings- O&O Shutup (free) offers an option to reset them to default as I recall.

    As various things can disable Cortana, one can only guess..

    I thought the default setting Location History for your Apps is OFF, except for Cortana which has to be ON to work. I just had a look at my settings they are all OFF except for Maps and Mail and Calendar so maybe the default for those is also now ON and probably has to do with Windows providing me with directions to my calendar events, again something I asked Cortana to help me with.
