    No. Same issue persists.
    I give up. Time to turn off Cortana. I rarely used it anyway.

    Update : Cortana is disabled via registry. One less annoyance.
    maybe she was feeling lonely and neglected. But seriously Iíve had the same then happen when there is aTV on in the room or Iím talking on my cell.

    I had that happening too a while ago, "she" picked up some sounds from TV and responded thinking it was addressing her, even offered a translation. Turned off microphone and it stopped.

    I know what you are getting at.
    No. That was not my Cortana setting.
    Mine was set to ..............Allow anyone to say "Hey Cortana".

    At the very beginning, I tried to set it to "Try to respond only to me", but it won't let me. So, I left it as is.

    You have a method to change that ?

    After setting respond to only me, you need to train her to your voice, by clicking "Learn how I say Cortana".

    You misunderstand my reply.
    I am asking HOW to change from "Allow anyone to say Hey Cortana" to "Try to respond only to me".

    Clicking at the dot is unresponsive.

    Just to satisfy my curiosityÖÖÖ.

    Can you change your Cortana setting from "Try to respond only to me" to "Allow anyone to say Hey Cortana" by clicking at the dots?
    And reverse it back to the way it was?
