Check privacy settings

To use it properly you first need to set the privacy settings in “Speech, Inking, & Typing”. It will ask for information about your location, and once you did this you can use Cortana. Also, you should keep in mind that you will leave Microsoft a bunch of personal information, such as events in the calendar and contacts, speech patterns and search history. If you are not a fan of excessive expose on the Internet, then you must think about it.

 

Find and explore Cortana

You can access to it in the simplest possible way through “search bar”. When you click on the icon will open a window with the information based on your interests and hobbies. If you click on the ‘Notebook’, from the left, you will be able to set the information that will be displayed in the future. Also, you can change the name that Cortana will use for you, and also popular and the most common location.

Cortana might remind you on “Google Now” because the information are divided in the cards, and there are twelve of them. Each category can be turned off if you feel that you are not interested in it, and some of them you can adjust according to personal preferences. For example, “Eat & Drink” lets you get recommendations from Foursquare, adding information about the atmosphere and similar things.

You can set the reminders, and you can ask for feedback on your ideas, things you like or dislike related to Microsoft.

Take your time to go slowly through all the possibilities that these cards offer, you will not be bored, and it’s not complicated.

 

Adjust Cortana’s settings

Almost all settings at Cortana can perform on the “Notebook”. What you do not like you can simply turn off. You can use Cortana with voice, and after hello, it will literally wait for your next command, and you can adjust it to only respond to your commands or you if you want you can involve more people.

 

Also, if you like traveling, Cortana as your personal assistant can help you with many things such as booking a flight, your packaging, keeping track of your luggage and everything else that sometimes makes a headache. Pretty cool!
