    I love how Cortana reads and lets me respond to text messages through my car's audio system. Is there a way to "Activate" Cortana from a Steering Wheel button so I can tell her to send a Text to someone? Now I have to physically activate her and then I can talk to her through the car's audio system. Want to be able to activate her without reaching for the phone....

    As long as you have 8.1.1, she should be listed as a contact. Tell your hands free dialer, "Call Cortana".

    Does your car's stereo/info system have a Voice Control Key? This is the name of a soft button on my aftermarket Pioneer stereo. I have only ever had my Lumia 920 with this stereo and it has always opened the original WP 8.0 and 8.1 speech recognition service or Cortana when pressing it, the same as pressing and holding the Windows capacitive button and now Search capacitive button respectively. There was no setup of the button required from either the phone or stereo other than the initial Bluetooth pairing of the two devices; it goes to speech recognition/Cortana out of the box.

    I would think any newer vehicle with Bluetooth preinstalled or a recent aftermarket device with Bluetooth would have this capability in the form of a soft button on a screen or a fixed button on the vehicle's dashboard somewhere. Steering wheel controls are another story. I have seen aftermarket wired controllers with programmable buttons for steering wheels but they only work with manufacturer specific devices.

    I have a question for those who aren't based in the US (UK ideally) and I'm sorry if this has been answered before.

    Is there a way to optimise Cortana to use the US version of Bing for worldwide searches? As the worldwide version is by far the better search engine for date searches and listings.

    Hi, is it ok to ask about Cortana setup here?

I setup my name on my phone, Cortana on my laptop forget my name. But other settings are sync through like i setup a reminder on my laptop and my phone also got it. Can anybody help? Thanks

    dikadik- I don't know sometimes software has its glitches. If it were me I would try my hardest to find a way to either reset cortana or the info she holds such as like you said your name. Hopefully you get that problem fixed, cause I know cortana can be a big help.
