    Hi !
    I installed W 10 over W 8.1 by update (french as only language). Everything just fine with the exception of cortana which I can't find anywhere let alone the fact that the magnifying glass in the taskbar doesn't any search window.
    Would you pls help ?

    No idea... probably one of many problems of W10TP.
    BTW: What about rather to say "stupid Cortana" instead? :)) Does anybody found, what is that forgery of Apple good for? I mean on the PC which has Google access already...

    I remember reading somewhere that to get Cortana working in any of the new regions (UK for me) the original install had to be in that language. So I had to get the en-GB version of the ISO and do a clean install to get it working right, because my original install was en_US which wouldn't work for the UK after the upgrade.

    Hope that makes sense. ;)

    thank you, install has been made in my native language i.e. french, I finally made it work by putting updates on the fast lane, rebooted and it works now ! when I say work, that means that moron app only "understands" words I pronounce with an english accent :eek:

    LOL, sorry to hear that. It kinda the same here, shes a lot better on WP8.1 than on Windows 10
    Hopefully she'll learn to speak and understand French better in the next few months. ;)

    Ha Ha... Great minds think alike.
    That's my Windows 10 Lockscreen. :biggrin:

    I had a mate called Dave, who had an Apple Mac and added the HAL voice pack to it.
    It was kinda creepy hearing his Mac say 'Hello Dave' when it started :eek:

    no offense against Cortana's appearance but Kubrick lifted it up to the limit ... . lol ... no way around :D

    edit: I've seen the movie when it came to the theaters here in germany in 1971/72 so I always get goose pickles when I'm into that :D
