Plus, if you have a compatible microphone you can talk directly to Cortana using your voice. You can ask Windows 10 Cortana on your PC things like “where is the closest joint” and Cortana will then give you options on the Cortana menu and open Microsoft Edge with a web search. You can even customize Cortana on your Windows 10 PC with your preferred settings, including a nickname, like “Master.”
