CORTANA IS DEAD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So guys , Ive had this problem over and over again. Cortana , after I have completely reinstalled windows seems to work for a day or two but after that all the settings seem to disappear. No , I haven't downloaded anything weird just standard stuff like CCleaner and what not maybe Malwarebytes and those are the only two things really. But yeh my cortana settings and the ability to respond to Hey Cortana seems to just disappear. One of the main downloads that I did which I thought maybe killed Cortana was a program called Spybot Anti Beacon , but I restored all my settings to default and it still doesn't work , now im just left with cortana looking like this. Anyway I know its far fetched to post worries about cortana on a page like this but if someone knows what the fix is that would be SMASHING

Microsoft doesn't support Cortana any longer and recent Windows-updates remove it.


Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

Thats what I thought as well. Microsoft stopped Cortana...

 

Personally, I was never too fond of it, pretty annoying actually.

Not true at all. Microsoft have changed the way she works dramatically, she is now a UWP app instead of a Windows service and they scaled back some of her features but she isn't going anywhere.

 

IIRC these changes are coming on Windows build 2004 which is due this month but as of right now my Cortana is still working normally.

 

EDIT - So actually you were half correct. They've killed her on iOS & Android and on Windows builds that are end of support they now disable her but as long as you're running one of the three latest builds of Windows 10, 2004 (20H1), 1909 (19H2) or 1903 (19H1) (and currently 1809 until 2004 releases), she should still be working.

So , does my cortana settings look exactly like everyone elses? Im confused. Im running Windows 10 Enterprise 1909 and you are saying it isnt a bug thats caused my cortana to not respond to "Hey Cortana" and instead its been removed in a windows update?

It hasn't been removed.

Installing a fresh Windows on your PC just got one step shorter!

 

When windows 10 first came out, I worked really hard to kill her, but the lengths Microsoft would go to re-enable that garbage was mind boggling. She would always randomly come back until I renamed her app folder and then she finally shut up and stopped slowing down my PC.
