Hands-on with Windows 10 consumer preview: Hey Cortana, is that a Start Menu?

In Technical Preview Build 9924, Cortana joins forces with notifications and search to make WIndows more responsive.

  • Cortana can now search for a wide variety of different file types.

  • Location-based reminders now roam across Windows and what used to be called Windows Phone.

  • A long list of reminders now includes Cortana, in the Action Center.

  • In our limited time we didn’t go searching through all the settings menus to see what was new, although some of the icons in the Control Panel appear slightly different, for example.

  • In this demo image, Microsoft's HoloLens headset will let you view virtual 3D images within your dull, everyday real world.
