Hi hi guys !!, Dave here.

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to fix the language problem you have with Cortan when you are using Windows 10. The first thing we need to do is check the Windows 10 Start menu or right here what it says Cortana, if you click here you will find that it is missing a language that is difficult to understand or use. Here we can click on that option, which shows the settings that shows that window with the language settings, the language language and text-to-speech and all these settings and as we can see we can't really do anything about it, it's disabled that so is a problem because Cortana cannot recognize our voice correctly!?.

The first thing we need to do is check the region and language. This option here .. the first thing you need to know is that Cortana only works with certain languages ​​or countries and this is Microsoft's official list.

This list contains the countries where you can use Cortana. I recommend you do this with the United States region, it is the easiest and you will need this United States English installation package. You can have others like the one I have here from Spain.

If you need to add this package you can do right here by adding a language then you can search for English ... right here then select the English language you want here.

In this case I chose United States. I recommend you do the same ..

Okayso the next step we have to do is to go to the English language pack and click on the options menu ... here we will see that we have neither the handwriting nor the language installed ..

This is the key to Cortana's problem. .we have to solve this problem..so we hit download and it will start downloading mmm it will take some time so i will stop the article and come back when it finishes ... see you soon ..... i I'm back so if the installation went well then you will see the language settings without the download button ... so now we have to go back to the settings, to the language option and here you will see that it is different now, now we have the english language installed and you can even choose that option if you really crappy accent ... something like mine and this is where you can choose the text-to-speech voice you want Microsoft Mark Mobile or Zira Mobile, the speed and in this part it is important that you set up the microphone ... so click on option that says 'Start' will bring up a window that opens this one ... this is where you will set up the microphone that You in this Case I'll use the defaults from my computer ... next ... here you need to speak so it will recognize your voice and say the little text or just speak as much as you want everything to be done here and You can finish ...

Okay, and that's it folks, we're done with Cortana now, if you want to let you know that you can click here and go to these settings to make it easier to get here and make it sure hey Cortana is on so if you use that phrase Cortana will recognize you Hey Cortana !!! ... that's me ... pretty cool and you can do things like open chrome ... sure open google chrome and it will open your browser .. just pretty cool right?!?! .. so that's it for people today I hope you enjoyed the article that helped you fix your problem, if you like the article thumbs up !! and quite importantSubscribe to my channel !! of course ... see you in another article here Davepeace is out !!!

Is Cortana good or bad?

Bad because Cortana can be tricked into installing malware, good because it can only be done with physical access to your computer. If you can keep hackers out of your house, they won't be able to access your computer. There is also no proof that the Cortana bug has been exploited by hackers yet.

What's up guys, I'm ThioJoe, and with Windows 7 officially dead and reaching the end of life, I recently talked about the need to upgrade to Windows 10.

And unsurprisingly, a lot of people got REALLY angry and act like upgrading to Windows 10 is worse than death. Maybe it was also due to the slightly sarcastic title. Now I personally find Windows 10 to be a totally fine operating system.

Not like 'yeah awesome!' As I thought Windows 7 was on release, but I definitely don't think it deserves all the hate it gets. That being said, I think I understand why some people hate it and they have some good reasons these reasons, and also why they are not as big a deal and how Windows 10 is not as bad as it used to be, when it was originally released and why you should consider giving it a try. Before we start, let me give my quick shameless plug to my really amazing Instagram account where I post the most amazing tech memes and cool pictures.

You'll literally die of amazement and laughter if you keep going there, so check this out, it's just @ThioJoe over Instagram, and if that's out of the way let's get into that. So when you ask people why they don't want to get Windows 10, you get a variety of answers. But there are only a few that really make up the bulk of the concerns that I'll just identify first and then we can address them in more detail I agree with all of this, I just want to show you how to fix these issues with little effort It seems to me that the absolute biggest flaws people hate in Windows 10 have to do with privacy and data collection, and also the Forced Updates, especially when combined with poor quality control of those updates.

The other main reason a lot of people hate Windows 10 is because of the terrible bloatware, along with Cortana, which some consider to be both a privacy issue and bloatware about Windows 10's privacy issues. You've probably heard that Windows 10 is 'spying on' you collects all possible information. Windows performs a form of data collection called 'telemetry,' which is the cause of these complaints.

Telemetry collects things like diagnostic information like errors, logs of frequently used programs and functions, and the like. None of these are purported to contain any personal information that can be used to identify you. From Microsoft's point of view, this data enables them to identify problems with Windows itself and its features, so that they can identify and fix them without relying on people to provide feedback to figure them out.

They can also troubleshoot issues that users didn't even know are problems. For example, a certain program might crash when a user runs it, but then they just run it again and it works just fine, so the user forgets about it. But Microsoft could see that same crash happened to a million people.

While it's not a big deal for any user, it's actually a big, widespread problem that they otherwise didn't even know was occurring. You can also use the data to see which features are used the most or which settings are changed the most, so you can know what to prioritize. On the other hand, from a user perspective, many people simply do not want a company to collect data about their activity, even if it is obviously not personally identifiable.

It is very understandable, and I f everyone in this camp where I do NOT like collecting data on my devices. Fortunately, there are several ways to reduce or disable the collection. The easiest way to limit the collection is Settings> Data protection> Diagnoses and feedback> Then change the diagnosis data from 'full' to 'basic'.

This won't stop it completely, but it will definitely reduce it a lot. There are several ways to stop it completely, but the easiest way is probably to use a free program I made. The entire article from earlier was called 'ShutUp10'.

I can highly recommend this article, which I will show up here and also include in the description. I won't go into any further detail here, but it's a program from the reputed O&O software company that allows you to easily disable many settings in Windows 10, including data collection and privacy settings that you would normally have to fiddle with in the registry to change. So definitely to be recommended.

Okay so now the other main reason I see so many people hating Windows 10 has to do with the forced updates, especially given Microsoft's history of the absolutely TERRIBLE quality control and testing history for many of these updates. This is also very understandable as Microsoft has repeatedly released major feature updates that broke things, although these feature updates should NOT be confused with security updates that are very important. A notorious example was the October 2018 update Microsoft released which was deleting files in certain directories for certain users and no one knew why at first.

This forced Microsoft to remove the update almost immediately, permanently damaging Windows 10's reputation when it comes to major updates. And I can definitely relate to that, because it seems like after every major feature update that happens about twice a year, I run into weird software and stability issues for a few weeks until the kinks are ironed out.But there is very good news anyway .

psiphon not working

You may not have noticed the May 2019 update, Microsoft changed how important updates are released and fixes one of the main reasons people are holding back, at least in my opinion. You see, Windows 10 is no longer going to force you to install the big important feature updates that are released twice a year and are usually the main cause of new problems and bugs. Windows Update will now only install the major updates if you manually choose, but will still be able to receive all of the minor Quality of Life updates such as bug fixes and security updates.

You can postpone these major updates until your current release version has reached the end of its life, which is about 18 months. So you can basically postpone these large, often problematic updates for over a year now, and by then all bugs should be ironed out. If that was the main reason you didn't like the idea of ​​Windows 10, then maybe there is nothing more to worry about.

Also, remember, if you're using Windows 10 Pro, which costs an additional $ 100 upgrade from the Home version, you can control exactly how often you get both feature and security updates separately. Personally, I hold feature updates at Delayed at least 2 months or so but don't delay security updates and think you shouldn't. If you're curious about the other differences between Windows 10 Home and Pro, I also made the article that I'll show up here if you can want to see afterwards.

Ok, on to the next reason, we preinstalled bloatware. Few things are more annoying than reinstalling Windows 10 and then you see your Start menu full of crap, including Candy Crush and literal ads for stupid apps. However, these can be deactivated immediately.

Programs like Candy Crush can be uninstalled from the list of apps in Settings, and for the ads that Windows calls 'Suggestions', they can be turned off in the Start menu settings by simply unchecking the 'Show suggestions on startup' setting . And then there's Cortana, Microsoft's virtual assistant that some people hate for a number of reasons. They may just find it annoying and worrying about privacy and be suspicious of having another virtual assistant follow up on their questions and searches.

I disabled Cortana myself because I never use it. Unfortunately, it's hard to completely disable Windows 10 Pro, but it's not impossible at home either; at home, it requires editing the registry, which is not recommended if you are unfamiliar with it. So all you have to do is look up how to do that if you want to.

But in any case, you can at least prevent most of the data from being tracked right in Cortana search settings. So Windows 10 is definitely not perfect, but most of the biggest ailments can be fixed and you only have to do this once. And I can understand why a lot of people who use Windows 7 might be saying, “Well, why should I get this one do all the trouble, Windows 7 works perfectly ”.

But if you know me I'm a security freak, and I don't think it's worth continuing to use an unsafe operating system, I'm just because you're not ready to spend an hour getting Windows 10 like this how you want it. And remember, you can still upgrade from 7 to 10 for free even though Microsoft doesn't advertise that, so just google how to do it, it's very easy, despite all the problems we've talked about, I think Windows 10 has a lot of great features worth using. First, it IS safer, not only because it receives regular security updates, but it also has better security features in general.

For example, it has exploit protection built into the operating system that previously required separate software called the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit. It even has built-in ransomware protection that you can turn on. There are also many features that previous versions never had. including DirectX 12 for games and other small functions like clipboard history and clipboard synchronization.

As the newest Windows operating system, it also offers the best driver and software support. And with Windows 7 out of service now, developers and hardware makers Cturer may not be focusing on Windows 7, so things may not work as well in the future. And this is just my opinion, but I actually like the new start menu and think it has carried over the best parts of previous versions.

Unlike Windows 8, which was an absolute abomination and only had tiles, Windows 10 brought back the list of apps on the left as you saw them in Windows 7, but you can also have tiles for shortcuts to everything on the right Pin page or remove tiles and arrange anything however you want. So if you're still a Windows 7 denier at this point, this article may have allayed your concerns about upgrading to 10, or at least only when it comes to the most common deal breakers. Obviously, I can't address every single one of the complaints people have, and I'm sure in the comments, many of you will have other more specific issues that you have regarding Windows 10.

And at the end of the day it's up to you, but I just want to make sure you're fully informed as to why you're upgrading or not, but anyway, if you want to keep watching, here are a few articles that I mentioned earlier about the 'ShutUp10' software and the differences between Windows Home and Pro. So thanks for looking, and see you next.
