    Anyone know a way to restart Cortana?


    Anyone know a way to restart Cortana? I've tried to end task, turning off/on, trying to relearn voice and she doesn't speak.

    This happens every time after locking the pc or turning off my tv display and logging back in.

    Sorry you're having a problem with this. How does she/it look in Task Manager. Processes tab? Services tab? If off, turn it back on there?

    Hope that helps.

    Cortana is still enabled when this happens and when I end task, it appears again right away in Task Manager. I also tried to restart the Windows Search service and it doesn't fix it when it stops working. Nothing works, but a sign out/in.
