    Cortana Listening Mode not working after Anniversary Update


    So I recently got the anniversary update and notice that now Win-C no longer opens Cortana in listening mode. Does anyone else notice this? Is there a way to get it back?

    Thanks!

    Excellent! Thanks for the quickly reply. I wonder why they added the Shift key to the sequence?

    Good to hear that worked for you

    I think i read somewhere that it stops people accidentally turning this on, i prefered the old 2 key method to using 3 keys

    I had to create an account just to thank you. I can't believe Microsoft tech wasted 2.5 hrs of our time in trying to fix this when it's simply just a matter of change in keyboard shortcuts thank you again!!
