The Microsoft Cortana PDA has just made its debut on Windows 10 and this certainly means a lot for users. Since the office or laptop is the epicenter of our work, we organize our schedule and plan our work for the day on the PC.
Cortana was one of the funniest personal assistants I met, and she also managed to get brownie points on the utility front. The remind me feature is something I have been using on my Windows phone (and now Android!) for a long time and Cortana has always met my expectations.
Fortunately, Microsoft has not only ported Cortana to a Windows 10 PC, but has also made some adjustments so that the PDA is adapted to the needs of PC users. This means Cortana can do all the work on your PC that its mobile counterpart does, but it can also help you search files, hands-free access to Microsoft Edge and integrate it with other applications for a truly seamless experience. In addition to all the functions already mentioned, Cortana can also perform another powerful function of dialing and sending a new mail.
Write and send an e-mail with Cortana
We will guide you through some of the steps that would allow Cortana to compose, edit and send an e-mail in no time. The whole task concerns the Hey Cortana feature, which would wake Cortana and dictate an email to her.
Activate Hey Cortana
Hey Cortana can be activated by clicking the Cortana search box on the left side of your desktop just above the Start menu. Click the Notebook button to access the Cortana notebook, with which you can track your preferences and interests. Even better, your preferences and interests are already synchronized with your PC when you use it on another device.
In the laptop, select Settings and change the Cortana option to’Hey Cortana’. Once lit, Cortana will respond to your voice, but before she guides you through a short reading process just to learn to speak.
Write an email
All you have to do is say Hey Cortana write an email Then Cortana will ask you who you want to send the email to, you can say the name of a person or the nickname of the person through whom you registered his contact in the address book. You can also name several people by separating the addresses with and.
Cortana will ask you for the subject, then it will continue and ask you for the content of the e-mail. If you need to make changes somewhere, just say Make changes and voilà! Cortana will obey your orders.
Cortana also displays a Continue option in Your default mailbox and also helps you select other mail accounts that you have configured in the Windows 10 Mail application.
Try it and see how you like it!
PS : With Cortana, you can do more than just search!
