Cortana is one of our favorite tools for getting things done more quickly and easily in Windows 10.
So we’re pretty pleased that Windows 10 Creators Update brings a handful of improvements to our favorite digital assistant.
After using them for a few days, we’ve pinpointed three that can help improve your productivity right now.
As helpful as it is to have Cortana at arm’s reach, it’s now useful when you’re across the room, too, thanks to a new full-screen mode.
Anytime your computer is unlocked and idle, you can summon your virtual assistant by saying, “Hey, Cortana” from anywhere within earshot and a screen-size interface will pop open.
Give it a try: Make sure you have Hey Cortana enabled in the Settings app, then don’t touch your keyboard or mouse for 10 seconds or so.
