    I have Cortana on my Windows 10 PC linked to my Android phone. I get a SMS on the phone and I get a notification on the desktop on the PC that I received the SMS and what it says. There is also a box to type my reply and send. I do so. Instead of sending the reply, Microsoft Edge opens to the Windows Store home page. It's bizarre.

    One clue. The words "Get incoming message from the Store" is printed next to the date of the message.

    I found this on a search. I have had problems with Android and texting since day 1 of going android. I cannot send texts from my Windows 10 computers while using an android phone. Doesn't work through Cortana, doesn't work in the action centre. It's driving me nuts. Worked no problem on W10 Mobile on my 950.

    What is the secret? Anyone? I've set up Cortana on my android phone and PC. It just won't friggen work.

    Cortana can only work if she’s enabled, and she can only hear your voice if there’s a microphone available. If she’s not enabled you might also find that the Windows button is not working. To verify Cortana is enabled in Cortana Settings:

    On the Taskbar, in the Search window, type Cortana.
    In the results click Cortana & Search Settings (in System Settings).
    Verify that the following options are enabled:
    Let Cortana respond to “Hey Cortana” to talk to Cortana.
    Respond when anyone says “Hey Cortana” to let anyone talk to Cortana.
    If desired, Use Cortana when my device is locked.
    Under Microphone and Make sure Cortana can hear me, click Get Started.
    Work through the wizard to set up the microphone.
    If there are problems, let Windows resolve them.

    If all else fails, use Messages For Android. Go to messages.android.com and bookmark the page after you sync with the phone.

    This works pretty well. It's a relatively new feature.

    If you're on Verizon, you can use their Message+ app. I've been using it for a couple years. The service works great! Although, since Verizon disabled the x86 app on Windows 10, you are forced to use the Store app. The Store app is garbage. I believe the x86 app is still available for Windows 7, but it cannot be installed on Windows 10.

    A Store App is garbage? Say it ain't so!

    The x86 app worked perfectly on my Windows 10 machine. Then one day, it stopped working and I was forced to install the Store app. I'll tell you something: any love I ever had for Store apps on desktop was gone! I know that a position should not be taken on one experience, but this isn't the the first.

    The Verizon Message+ service itself still works fine. I have the app on my two iPads as well, and it functions perfectly there. It's that disgusting Store app on desktop...
