Cortana on Windows 10 is a robust digital assistant which lets you do a lot more than just search or tell jokes. A lot of users will be wondering what to do with Cortana, and this is where we come in. A digital assistant is something that is new to most people, and as such, they might have an issue coming up with ways to use it. Not to mention the fact that using the voice feature could force some users to think twice.

What can Cortana do

Using your voice isn’t a must, but it makes things feel as if you’re in the future.

For those who are left wondering what to use Cortana for, let’s break it down for you guys with five things to do with Cortana.

Make Cortana check the weather

This is usually the first thing that comes to the mind of many computer users. Just type “Weather” to know the weather in your location, or “Weather in [type location here]” to know the weather somewhere else.

Ask Cortana to perform calculations and conversions

Not certain what 1+1 is? Cortana can tell you. Just type it in the search box and watch as the correct answer pops up on the screen. Furthermore, if you want to convert one currency to another, just simply type, for example, 100 USD to GBP. It never failed us yet, so we are certain it won’t fail you either.

Just make sure your computer is connected to the web.

Search the web using Cortana

One of the many things you can do with Cortana is search the vastness of the web. Type whatever query you want into the search box and watch the magic happen before your very eyes.

Set an alarm using Cortana

Want to set an alarm but too lazy to start the alarm app? Just type, “set the alarm for [time].” Too easy right? We agree. This will launch the Alarms and Clocks app, and all the user needs to do next is click on save.

Have a chat with Cortana

Cortana is not human, so attempting to hold a very meaningful conversation with the digital voice assistant will lead to nowhere. You can say things like, “Where’s Clippy” and more.

Bonus Tip: Use Cortana to send an Email

Overall, Cortana is an exceptional service, but there are aspects that require improvement. Also, the service can be found on Android and iOS, not just the Windows platforms.
