How to make the most of Windows Cortana. Cortana is one of the features of Windows 10 that we find causes a bit of confusion for our customers can actually be one of its great strengths, if used correctly. With Microsoft's version of Siri, Windows Cortana, in your life, you need never worry again about forgetting that important appointment or opening an app using just your fingers - how old fashioned! Virtual assistants are the future and now's the perfect time to let us teach you a bit more about them.

What is it?

Digital assistants are all the rage. In an ever more frantic world, we're more and more dependant on these assistants to remember our appointments, find information quickly and book tickets to concerts and movies. Cortana is Microsoft’s version of this. It is simple to use and you can either ask questions by typing or talking, as long as you have a microphone on your device.

What can it do?

What can’t Cortana do is a more appropriate question. The assistant can send messages, set reminders based on time, people and places, track packages, manage your calendar and open apps. If that’s not enough, you can also kick back at the end of a busy day and play games using Cortana. She's a keeper!

Useful features

Cortana has many useful features to allow you to become more productive. Set quiet hours and get on with work without being disturbed.
