12. Pow­er­ful nat­u­ral language search

Windows Advisor - - Feature -

Cor­tana can han­dle all sorts of com­mands you is­sue us­ing nat­u­ral language, such as play­ing mu­sic, cre­at­ing re­minders, show­ing the weather, or even re­mem­ber­ing ran­dom facts for you, but the most pow­er­ful use of her nat­u­ral language abil­i­ties re­volves around ba­sic search ca­pa­bil­i­ties. You can give Cor­tana ba­sic com­mands like “Find pic­tures from June” or “Find doc­u­ments with Win­dows 10” and she’ll ap­ply the ap­pro­pri­ate fil­ters, then scour your lo­cal files and ONEDRIVE stor­age for re­sults.

You can now en­able Cor­tana on the Win­dows lock screen as well, where you can use voice com­mands to view and edit your sched­ule at a glance. To turn on the fea­ture, open Cor­tana and head to ‘Cog’ icon > Set­tings > Use Cor­tana even when my de­vice is locked.
