    Cortana


    Hi all!

    Does Cortana come with it's own microphone (audio driver)? It keeps telling me to check the microphone, but I guess my Compaq Presario desktop doesn't seem to have one even though I listen to music just fine as well as the audible notifications I get. Am I just not looking for it in the right place? Do I need to buy a microphone now, or will Windows 10 send an update for audio drivers?

    You'll need to buy a microphone or webcam/mic.
    Get a decent one if possible or Cortana will have a hard time recognizing your speech.
