I find cortona is very limited as a search tool and far less helpful than what I had previously. I want to do a key word and subject search and it only returns titles and it does not search my email box either.

Cortana, for me, has taken a massive step backwards in Win10M. Like you, I only get titles, if I even get a response. Mine just defaults to offering bing results! The desktop version is just them same for me, so it appears to be device wide, and yet, for some it works fine? Some mobile users have given up and not even pinned it to the start screen.

I'm not entirely sure what has gone on, as it used to be a great tool. Tracking stuff, showing sports results, score updates etc. Now? Nada!

I'm not sure where you are in the world, but some in the UK have had luck by changing region, speech and language to USA.

I'm sure there are many people on these boards that could help you further, so why not join up. It's free to join and you'll get access to a wealth of information.
