Windows 10: Cortana Problem

    Cortana Problem


    When setting up "Hey Cortana" I followed some bogus instructions. I typed "Activate Hey Cortana" in the search box. Now it thinks my name is: Activate Hey Cortana.

    I can't figure out how to change that, and get my real name in there.

    open up the cortana search box and go to settings (those series of horizontal lines at the top left corner). All you need to do is to toggle the slide switch on to make cortana respond to "Hey Cortana".

    Thank you. That did it. This is a great forum, and I'm loving Windows 10.
