One of the most notable features of newly released Windows 10 is surely Microsoft’s very own personal assistant, Cortana. Cortana can help you with all sorts of stuff like organizing your tasks, browsing the internet, etc. But it has one flaw, it’s not available in all countries.

As Microsoft said on its official website, you’ll be able to use Cortana in Windows 10 only if you’re from one of the following countries or regions: China, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States. Cortana is available in these languages: Chinese (Simplified), English (U.K.), English (U.S.), French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

Unfortunately, Microsoft didn’t say anything about expanding this list. But, we should understand that translating Cortana to all world’s languages is one hell of a job, and as Microsoft had to focus on other features and making Windows 10 as stable as it could be, making Cortana available in all countries in the world was mission impossible.

On the other hand, you can still use Cortana even if you don’t reside in one of the mentioned countries or regions, but you’ll have to change one thing in your language and region settings. To get Cortana working anywhere in the world, follow these instructions:

  1. Open Settings from Start Menu and go to Time and language
  2. Under Country or region box, select country in which Cortana is available

That’s it, you don’t have to do anything else, not even reboot. Just close settings, and you can use Cortana. But be aware that when you change the language, it affects the whole system, not just Cortana. So if you have some feature or program that is designed especially for your native language, it may not work once you change it. But, changing the language is very simple and easy, so you don’t have to worry about it.
