Improving Web Searches with Cortana

You can start a web search with Cortana in two ways: directly from the Cortana Search window or by clicking the Search the web link visible in the previous lesson. In this lesson, you learn how your search terms affect your results.

  • red03.jpg If your search term finds a matching website, it is displayed first.
  • red04.jpg Cortana knows your location, so your results are also localized.
  • red05.jpg Click or tap to close the browser.
