On setting up Windows 10 for the first time on my PC, I saw Cortana. Is it necessary to set up at the beginning, or is it okay to skip it? It is also visible in the search bar. What is Cortana, and for what can it be used?
What Is Cortana, And For What Can It Be Used?
Cortana is a virtual assistant but for Windows 10. Much like Siri and Google Assistant, Cortana is a personalized assistant which is voice activated. Firstly, NO. It is not necessary to set up Cortana during the Windows setup. Cortana is connects to the internet and it answers your queries based on the results it fetches from the internet.
In addition to answering queries, Cortana can be used to do trivial tasks such as a search for apps on the computer, fetch web results and set reminders, and so on. Cortana is one of the most used features of Windows 10. Cortana learns from your activities for personalization once you log into it.
