Help please with using Cortana on a W10 desktop to set an alarm.
Sometimes when I click Cortana (the circle symbol in the start tray, to the right of the Windows icon) I get a Cortana screen with an “ask me anything” box at the bottom. When I enter “Wake me in 5 minutes.” in that box I do get a beep in 5 minutes.
But other times, instead of that Cortana screen; I get a Bing page with “Wake me in 5 minutes.” in the Search Box; and I do not get an alarm in 5 minutes.
What am I doing wrong here? How should I be using Cortana for alarms? Is Cortana to be used only in mobile devices? Is there a better app i should be using to set simple alarms?
Thanks. … batpark
