    Hey there!

    I cannot get Cortana to turn off quiet hours by voice command. Everytime I say "turn quiet hour off" she wants to turn off an alarm. I don't even have any alarms set to on, although a few are programmed. It used to work by saying "turn off do not disturb" but even that now just goes the same.

    Anyone have any different results?

    Though I only use Cortana, sparingly ...
    her abilities seem to have rolled back recently.

    e.g. asked Cortana 'what can you do' verbally
    response was 'here are some things ...' verbally, followed by a blank screen.

    Something must be in the works.

    I do find the WiFi feature very helpful, turn OFF WiFi, under turn WiFi back on, select 'near my favorite places' which turns WiFi back ON when I get home (a favorite place). This does however limit favorite places as for this purpose I ONLY have home as a favorite place. This has worked 100% of the time, whether gone for an hour, or all day to work (NO WiFi).

    Perhaps a separate category under Favorite places for WiFi places.

    EDIT: just tried it & it worked with :
    verbally, very deliberately 'Turn ON Quiet hours' ' Turn OFF Quiet hours'
    we have to figure out how she thinks

    IF I've solved your problem, thanks are appreciated.

    It's very hit or miss. Turning it on worked just now, turning off using "Turn OFF quiet hours" got me to the turn off alarm option. Going to "Turn OFF do not disturb" worked however.
