    By not updating to Windows 10
    Are you sure you're using Windows 8.1?
    Cortana is on 10 and not on 8.

    Hello Cliff S

    Oh yes, this is an office with four original Windows 8.1 RT installed O/S PC's. Today morning I saw Cortana in one of our computers.

    Thanks, for the answer

    Hello Cliff S,

    You're right. After reading your answer I saw that one of our pc has windows 10. Is that for an update? I don't know,

    Thanks

    Hello Exeter,

    Yes, Windows 10 would have been installed by an update. If you like, you could go back to Windows 8.1, and disable the Windows 10 update.
