I use Cortana all of the time for daily projects. But over the past week, it doesn't answer my questions anymore. Every once in a while, it does work when I ask it to start Chrome or Firefox but 95% of the time, it's no longer working. Any idea on what's going on here? Thanks so much.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
There could be a number of reasons this is happening. Here is a link that gives a few of the better examples of things to try to correct the problem. I have had issues as well with Cortana. A lot of people say going into task manager and ending the process and letting it restart will solve it but it did not work for me.
You may have to try a few to get it working again.

    One more thought, please create a new user account & check if the issue persists. Also again try to setting up to optimize voice recognition. Sometimes, voice change might be an issue.
