Tip of the Week: Cortana Can Do Even More than You Might Realize

Tip of the Week: Cortana Can Do Even More than You Might Realize

One of the most recognizable names in technology isn’t a person, it’s a virtual assistant: Cortana. While Cortana has been of great use to many users, sometimes that user isn’t actually the person who owns the device and is just someone else in the same room. This can be annoying, but there’s a way to acquaint Cortana with a single user’s voice and listen to them exclusively.

To set this up, you’ll need to access Cortana’s Settings. First, click on the Cortana Icon that appears on the taskbar.
