    Cortana not opening/not working when pressing the mic button

    I have a problem with Cortana not opening after pressing the mic button on the taskbar and "Hey Cortana" does not work also.

    This is a clean install of windows 10 on a Lenovo laptop, I had no problems with Cortana before. If someone can help me I would greatly appreciate it

    Have you checked if Cortana is running at all?

    Yes, in the task manager it says cortana is running, but every time I click the mic button the black box appears and then disappears quickly also causing my start button to not work for some seconds.

    I uninstalled my microphone driver in the device manager and I let it reinstall itself and got Cortana to work again after I booted it up again later in the day.

    This sounds like me ! (uninstall driver, Windows detects it & all is well till reboot ...)
