Windows 10 should be burnt..

Original Poster

Up to today, when I typed in the 'ask me anything' box I was getting results. Say I typed 'MP3', I would get the MP3s on my computer alongside links to MP3 sites etc.

Now, as soon as I type MP3 in the box, or anything else, it's completely empty.

I've rebooted to no avail. Have I turned something off accidentally?

Ta.

Yeah, any idea how to re-enable it?

Type Turn Cortana on in the box and see what happens. There are other ways but would have to find them for you.

Thanks mate. I ended Cortana in Task Manager (although it came back straight away) but it is working again now.

Thanks everyone.
