11. Make Cortana’s ears perk up
Cortana has finally made the leap to the PC in Windows 10, assuming control of the OS’s search functions and dishing out just as much sass as the Windows Phone version. But by default, she doesn’t listen for your commands. If you’d like to be able to just bark commands at your PC, open Cortana by clicking the search field in the taskbar and select the Notebook icon in the left-side options pane. Select Settings from the list, then simply enable the Let Cortana respond when you say “Hey Cortana” option. You’ll need an active microphone for this to work, of course.
