    information   Information
    Cortana is your cloud-based personal assistant that works across your devices and other Microsoft services. Depending on the capabilities of your device and the version of Cortana youíre using, Cortana can provide a range of features, some of which are personalized. Cortana on Windows is available in certain regions and languages. If Cortana isnít available for your Windows device, you can still search for files on your device in the search box on the taskbar. Cortana is also available on other platforms, such as Android and iOS, in select markets.

    Cortana works best when you sign in and let her use data from your device, other Microsoft services, and third-party services you choose to connect. To provide you with personalized experiences, Cortana learns from certain data about you, such as your searches, calendar, contacts, and location. Youíre in control of how much data you share. If you choose not to sign into Cortana on Windows, you can still chat with Cortana and use her to help you search the web, documents stored in Microsoft services like OneDrive, and your Windows device. See the section about Windows Search in the Privacy Statement for more information. If you donít sign in, or you choose to sign out, your experiences will be more limited and they wonít be personalized with your Cortana data. On iOS and Android devices, Cortana only works when you sign in.

    Cortana can send notifications and information between devices to tell you on this Windows 10 PC what is happening on your other devices that you are also signed in with your Microsoft account. This includes low battery warnings, phone calls or texts, what you last worked on, and more.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Cortana to send notifications and information between devices for your account in Windows 10.
