Tip of the Week: Hey Cortana! Don’t Listen to Them, You’re my Virtual Assistant

Cortana, Windows 10’s built-in personal assistant, has proven to be useful for those users who have taken advantage of her services. Sometimes, however, the Cortana interface will answer when another person in the room beckons her. For Cortana to work for one person, and to obey only one voice, the software needs to get to know that voice.

To begin to set this up you have to open Cortana’s Settings. To do this, click on the Cortana Icon on the taskbar.
