          • My PC no longer gets SMS notifications from my phone

            I used to be able to send SMS messages from my PC using Cortana and I got notifications on my PC when I received a text. This stopped working a few weeks ago.

            • Microsoft Launcher Cortana won't find mobile numbers for contacts

              I'm trying to text with Microsoft Launcher's Cortana, but she always says she can't find a mobile number for the contact, even though the contact definitely has one in my contacts. Galaxy S8

              • Cortana

                Cortana on Microsoft launcher needs to be improved to at least match 1/2 the functionality of Google assistant. Currently Cortana on launcher is rather useless

                    • Conflict between SMS Organizer and Cortana

                      The features of SMS Organizer by Microsoft is to block unwanted SMS by unknown sender and move it to a different tab. This feature
                      is conflicting with Cortana as "It" reads out the SMS from "Blocked" tab.

                      • Asking Cortana "what can you do" doesn't give an answer, just a dot.

                        When I asked Cortana "what can you do" the resulting answer was just a period without an answer.

                              I don't see why I have to separately install cortana to get notifications sync to my PC, the launch already have cortana built in.

                                • Cortana search results or chat with it disappears if I switch the screen to another app

                                  when I talk with Cortana she is too complex but it is good when the search results appears and I am reading but need a translation for a word or if I switched to any app and want to back to the search results I couldn't find it . the search results disappeared and not even found in recent apps nor in Cortana itself when I open it again so Cortana doesn't save a history of searching like Google assistant .

                                    • cortana

                                      Cortana commands result in a bing search.

                                      Hi +Ezra Park I am a Google user with an Android phone (Lenovo P2) and a Windows 10 laptop with Microsoft software.

                                      I'm trying to use Microsoft Launcher--BUT.

                                      Microsoft to-do is not integrated, the old Wunderlist is. When I use Cortana to create a 'Note-to-Self' it does a Bing search--with the native launcher (OK Google), it works fine.

                                      Cortana provides a Bing search for almost every command it's given, e.g.' 'Change accent colour' = Bing search UNLESS it is offered as a suggestion in Cortana and then it changes the accent colour.

                                      Opening…

                                      • Cannot navigate back

                                        Back button closes Cortana search rather than navigating to the previous page.
