    How do I install Cortana? Didn't come with the install.


    For some reason Cortana wasn't installed when I installed Windows, I don't know whehter I disabled it somehow, but anyway, I'd like to have it. So, how do I install it?

    I've looked at some instructions nad they say click on the notebook icon, but I hvae no notebook icon under the house icon.

    Hello Alfred,

    It appears that Cortana may not be available for your region.

    Hmm... I DID have Cortana working on a previous installation of Win 10.
