Almost all technology firms now pre-install a voice assistant app to promote their invention. Google’s Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Huawei’s Celia, and Microsoft’s Cortana are all examples of virtual assistants. However, Microsoft’s Cortana appears to be the least popular of all the voice assistant programs.
Cortana is still a component of Windows 10, despite the fact that it has long lost the AI voice assistant war to its competitors. Cortana is included in every new version of Windows 10. Microsoft has also placed Cortana directly on the taskbar for easy access. However, many people seem to dislike Microsoft’s Cortana.
It was difficult to uninstall Cortana from a PC prior to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. If you delete all Cortana-related files, you’ll run into problems like Windows search not working, the Start Menu not opening, and so on.
However, with the release of Windows 10 version 2004, Microsoft opted not to add Cortana as part of the operating system. That means that if your machine is running Windows 10 Version 2004, you can easily uninstall Cortana.
