The complete list of Cortana commands



If you don't use Cortana, Microsoft's voice-activated personal
assistant, you're missing out on some handy, hands-free functionality --
especially now

that she's fully integrated into Windows 10, and

Windows 10 is everywhere.

Like Apple's Siri and Google's Google Now, Cortana is an intelligent
personal assistant who can help you with everything from launching
applications to

scheduling appointments. She can even adjust a handful of device
settings, such as toggling your Wi-Fi on and off. Microsoft hasn't
published a full list

of Cortana commands, so we pulled together this unofficial list of all
the things you can ask or say to Cortana on Windows 10 devices.

Hey, Cortana

There are a few ways to get Cortana's attention.

list of 3 items

Click or tap the Cortana button on the taskbar. If you do not see
Cortana on your taskbar, right-click the taskbar and go to Cortana >
Show Cortana icon.

If you have 'Hey, Cortana' enabled, simply say "Hey, Cortana," followed
by your question.

Here's how to enable 'Hey, Cortana.'

If you're using a Windows Phone, you can press and hold the search
button to activate Cortana.

Hello All,

Today I read a question from one of our member asking that window key
and letter C does not open Cortana.



Out of curiosity I tried it too and it did not open.

Then the help from the member said try Shift Key Window Key and letter C

I tried it and it opened.



A female voice asked me she needs my help to understand my needs or
something like that.

I pressed escape key and came out off it as I know nothing about it.

Please I will appreciate very much if someone can tell me what Cortana
does and how do I work with it. Are there any notes or step by step
guidance that I can follow.

I really would like to learn and progress with technology.

With best wishes and regards always

Hi


Try the following you may have the following turned on. It can be found
under nvdas browse mode settings. It is called Use screen layout (when
supported) locate it and uncheck it if it is checked.


If you are in the browser if i remember right the shortcut is the nvda
key + the letter V. This if used will turn it off and on.

It is the difference between the link beeen on the same line and not as
the text.

It may do the trick.

Re: links in IE

I don't know how you move to links.  When this happens, try the following possible solutions:
Try tabbing and shift tabbing back to the link.  You may not be exactly on it when moving with the arrow keys.  Even though the link is read, you may not be exactly on it.
If that solution doesn't work, try pressing shift and pressing enter while holding shift.  This will cause the link to open, if it does, in a new window so you will now have two browser windows opened.
If neither of these solutions work, you may want to try a different browser.  Internet Explorer is becoming increasingly archaic.  You can still use it but while other browsers are improved and upgraded, Internet Explorer isn't being improved.  it's there but Edge is the browser Microsoft is keeping technically current. 
 
and Firefox has features that are convenient and useful that Internet Explorer doesn't have or doesn't have conveniently, such as being able to search book marks and a reading mode feature that removes a lot of interruptions from articles, such as blocks of links in the middle.

Hello,

Thank you, but I already read that section in the user guide before posting. as I said in my original message, I cannot get into either browse mode or bring up the elements list when a chart is visible and in focus when that sheet in the workbook is displayed.

Thanks,

Jeffrey

Hello,

I am using Excel 2016 for a class I am taking this semester, and one of the workbooks we are using has a pie chart in it.

Does NVDA support reading these kinds of charts? If so, what needs to be done to enable the reading of them?

Also what types of charts, if any, does NVDA support the display of so that I can read the data contained in them?

I tried bringing up the elements list, and all I get is the spell check dialog box.

I cannot bring up browse mode either, pressing NVDA+Space does nothing.

This seems to only happen when charts are visible.

I am using the latest next snapshot of NVDA if this makes a difference.
If this works correctly in the official version, please let me know, and I'll switch back. I am hoping I do not have to resort to using another screen reader to complete this work.

Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide in this matter.

Hello,

I am not sure. How would I go about accessing the table that the chart was created from in the workbook? I don't remember how. It's been probably 7 years or so since I've used charts in Excel.

Thanks,

Jeffrey

Normally the chart would be created by Excel from some table which contains
the numbers to be converted into "pie slices".

It would be simpler to read the numbers from the table instead of interacting
with the chart, I think.

Registry cleaners help at times but they often have no benefit and pose a slight risk even on nonaggressive settings.

Re: Disc cleaning and defragmenting in Windows 10

You need to use another program.  I don't think Erunt is recommended for Windows 7 either, though I may be wrong about that.  I know that a reliable tech on another list says it is not good to use in Windows 10. 
 
It would still be good to have more than one option for reversion.  Are restore points made if you manually make them?

As a supplemental question, I have noticed at least on my machine, that the
system restore points  are not being written by software or windows updates
as they are in windows 7. Yes its switched on for the drive I checked. I
thus thought, what about Erunt, that good old failsafe registry back up
program that works so well on most of my other flavours of windows, but ehen
it tries to run it gets access denied even with uac at zero.
 What is the difference here, is there another control I need to tweak to
allow it to make registry back ups. Other software like eusing registry
cleaner etc, seem to manage it OK.

Press the Windows key to open the Cortana search box, type defrag, then
press enter on the desktop app.  I think W10 self-defrags the hard drive but
check out the app.

Not really and especially if you have an SSD, it is recommended to turn
