    Cortana is your clever new personal assistant. Cortana will help you find things on your PC, manage your calendar, track packages, find files, chat with you, and tell jokes. The more you use Cortana, the more personalized your experience will be.

    Cortana can display Taskbar Tidbits from time to time with thoughts and greetings in the Search box. The Taskbar Tidbits of Cortana are basically messages such as “Good Morning!”, “Need something, Brink?”, “What would you like me to do, Brink?”, etc.., but can also contain advertising.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off displaying Cortana Taskbar Tidbits for your account in Windows 10.
    Note   Note
    You will need to sign in to Cortana with your Microsoft account to be able to turn on Taskbar Tidbits.

    Is there a way to do this via the registry? I am trying to do this for my organization and would need to do it programmatically. Thanks!

    I'm afraid that I haven't found any other way so far.
