    I have an near new Desktop Computer that came with Windows 8.1. Upgraded to windows 10 the Cortana feature will not work it says it it is not supported in my region the uk which is odd as I upgraded my other desktop pc and the Cortana feature works fine.

    Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

    I am having the exact same problem. My first PC I upgraded to Windows 10 works fine with Cortana but the second PC keep telling me that Cortana is not available in this country.
    I have set everything exactly the same on each PC but still no luck.
    I have read about it on Microsoft's forums and it seems like a ton of ppl are having the same problem.

    I also have this problem. I know it will work if I change my region to USA but then I will have to keep changing for the app store and everything is quoted in dollars. Does anyone know of a better way to fix this, after all it IS now available in the UK?

    This is what I did:
    Opened CMD as administrator, typed gpupdate /force Pressed Enter.

    Then went to Start|Settings|Time & language|
    Double clicked:
    "English United Kingdom
    Windows Display Language"
    Next clicked

    Clicked Speech and downloaded a language pack.
    After that Cortana appeared and worked.

    I think the problem is to do with the language and you must have all the different options set to English UK.

    Can't guarantee this will work for you but it did for me.
