    Who is Cortana?

    This Cortana feature seems like some kind of joke. Just installed Win10. Now, everytime my laptop goes to sleep, I have to re-boot to get it going again. I asked Cortana why, and the answer came back with a link to the Beatles' "Why Don't We Do It In the Road"...

    Answer to thread title: Cortana is the name of a fictional character in the Halo video game.

    Now as to your question on it/her, in Windows 10, Cortana is a web search/system & folder search tool, that can be used by voice or text(typing). Like any search tool, you need to be more specific, and if using voice, Cortana needs to be trained. Also when cleaning your system(browser and OS) you need to make sure you DO NOT clean MS search or browser history, so Cortana can learn your interest's, and you can benefit from the advanced search algorithm.

    I Find Cortana very helpful.
    I use her 99% of the time to search the web.
    She is certainly fast at finding what you want.

    Thx for the input folks. I guess it's just another thing to get used to. Still have an issue with having to re-boot after sleep mode...made another post in 'Installation and Set-Up'
