To activate "Hey, Cortana," click in the search box located in the Taskbar.

When the Search window comes up, click on the Notebook icon on the left side of the window

Next, click on the Settings icon.

There you'll find a button to enable Hey Cortana. Click on it to slide it to the On position.
You can now go about using your computer as you normally would, and whenever you need Cortana to perform a task, start by saying, "Hey, Cortana," followed by your command
thanks bro.

I don't understand
You mean if installing windows 10 will fix your registry problems?
I got a new mini beast of a laptop
But I keep getting this isdone.dll error
I tried everything but nothing works
So I'm wondering if Windows 10 will correct the error

dll errors are mostly game errors. I dont think its a registry problem. A good search on google would go a long way in fixing that, as I cant guarantee that windows 10 will fix it.

My friend , I have done everything to fix it but no show,
The funniest thing is that my old laptop doesn't have the isdone.dll file but it installs the games flawlessly but it can't play them sha.
My new lappie is a Dell ispiron 5000 I5 2.2ghz 5th gen
Nvidia 920m 4gb RAM. That is as useless as a picture of. Food.
I might downgrade to Windows 7

Hmmm so Windows 10 doesn't drivers win 8
How much knowledge do you have on pc games,
If I copied the files of a game and start playing can it lead to the game crashing

Copy and play can only work with old games but if it's a new game it won't work because most new games makes entry into the registry

I pray for the phone makers to seriously come up with a good if not better PC replacement coz the PCs trouble are just too much...when you get a smart phone your are rest assured that for the next one year or more your aren't fixing anything but just imagine me buying a new system for my designs and the first welcome I get is an overheating fault and the next thing I start buying and replacing parts like an assembly plant manager, I'm just fed up of these systems and I seriously pray God inspires Google to match up a PC android or a more serious machinery

Touche!

I have exactly these same thoughts. I wish Microsoft have serious competition, and I don't mean Apple Mac OS cos they don't compete directly with Microsoft here in Nigeria, I mean a versatile PC OS like Windows, like Android PC equivalent, will be around. If only Android could have a full-fledged PC version that can run Windows app. Android, for instance, is just easy to use. Windows and their hardware machines could be problematic sometimes you want to smash it on the ground.

I tell you my broda,like the android is comes preinstalled and you will never have any problem with the software unless if bricked by you but these windows,its in fact heart aching that if its not the software you are solving its the hardware in fact do you know its windows is that made virus seems like a bad thing,yessss!!! the virus developers use it for phishing and information extortion not to corrupt any software whatsoever but the windows has no other excuse for their flaws ad they tell u to spend thousands of mb downloading an antivirus and still yet a virus eats up the so called trash of a PC and then the processor comes into the blame play,,,after buying an expensive specs with a more higher processor then they blame It on the motherboard.....to name but a few,its from one problem to the other and I don't even blame these PC engineers,they are just trying to earn a living and even when they know the PC is irreparable they won't tell,rather they make u suffer before you find it out yourself....its disgusting !!!!
just imagine me buying a new Pc of 70k and I didn't use the damn piece of poo for any drawings at all before the whole thing came crashing like the house of cards....damn!!

Please enumerate the UPGRADE, and don't mention the UI, that doesn't count abeg. What third party app will solve the low RAM issues.

I use a core i5 2.6ghz Intel 4th generation CPU
I don't do heavy graphics as my work is basically remote tech support. I don't have any games installed.

The battery issues, I won't even bother talking about that. In my humble opinion, Windows 10 should have remained in BETA for quite a while, before assulting our senses with their collosal failure. It seems the higher they go, the worse it becomes. I just see Windows 10 as a failed attempt at developing a closed system like Apple, which will never work.

I like the UI, but the performance leaves too much to be desired. Hopefully in 2yrs from now, Windows 10 will finally be an upgrade, for now it's still fancy for someone like me. I UPGRADED back to windows 7 with speed.

Someone should please tell Microsoft that we don't need fancy, we need performance period.
Your complain of low RAM of 6g is a surprise to me. I use 2g RAM and Intel 2.7ghz. My win10 upgrade is working so fine. You may check other causes of your complain but not the RAM functions

My system does a lot of multi tasking, with minimum of 10 Chrome Tabs open, Remote desktop, and other tools and processes in the background.

2GB RAM doesn't even cut close in a windows 7 system.

However My windows 7 handled it fine. Upgraded to 10, and somehow an unknown process just seem to start eating my RAM.

A better OS like all programs should eat less not more.

Well, I'll still have to install windows 10 As I have to start support users of the system soon.

What can I say, I may hate the OS, but I got to live wiith the flaws... Damn grin grin

You're welcome.
Actually, you didn't have sleep mode because during the update, Microsoft un-installed your display driver and installed the Microsoft basic display adapter (which didn't have sleep mode) for you. Then when you connect to Internet, your PC automatically downloads your driver back and give you your sleep mode back.

goto "device manager" and check if the driver is properly installed. If not then try installing it.

Were you using it before? if yes what made it to stop?
If you upgraded it, try "roll back driver" in the device manager.

But in a case where by all fail, I'll suggest you upgrade to 8.1. that's the best windows for now. A clean install is advised.
