    No "Hey Cortana" option in Settings


    I have Windows 10. When I select the Settings option there is not an option to turn on Hey Cortana. The first option is "Cortana can give you suggestions..." and the second is "Device search history". Can anyone please tell me where to find the option to turn on "Hey Cortana" as it should be under Settings according tot he sites I have read. Thank you

    I think that must have been the answer.
    In playing around further, after posting my question, during one aspect of checking settings I had turned on the 'location'.
    The when I looked at the Settings in following your suggestions, the "Hey Cortana' was present.
    So, thanks derekimo, my problem is resolved.
