    Siri, Google Now, Cortana and others are currently fun toys to play with but don't do anything truly useful yet. Maybe 5-10 years down the road we will actually be able to speak to our computers to accomplish what we need to do. The phrases that something like Cortana can understand and act upon are way too limited at this time. AI needs to advance further so that these types of programs can actually understand what you are asking for as opposed to just the ability to respond to a few spoken commands.

    don't have a microphone on my PC, so I don't use it. Besides, I really don't have an interest in talking to a machine.

    One of the 1st things I did after upgrading to Win 10 Pro, was turn a lot of crap off, Cortana was top of my list.
    Along with OneDrive, and a lot of crap in our Privacy settings. Also anything to do with Xbox.

    My alternate file manager has a search that only looks for files on this PC. My alternate start menu has a search that first lists matches from start menu items, then below a line it shows matches of indexed files on the PC. When I want to search the internet I use my preferred browser.

    Microsoft might call those primitive compared to Cortana, but I find them sensible, competent, easy to use, and they search where I want them to.
