    Just upgraded my desktop, another UK user with Cortana issues, I see the magnifying glass instead of Cortana in the taskbar, no voice input, and when I go into settings it says choose the language for Cortana (All normal settings set to UK) and I see English US, Canada, Aus and India, NO British English.

    Any one found a solution?
    Found a fix (tried it and it works) for missing Cortana. This is changinging registry value so take neccesary precautions, backup etc, solution was posted to a response on Microsoft site...
    I found the answer on another thread. It's a registry setting. Starting RegEdit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search, and change Cortana and Bing permissions from 0 to 1
    I was just about to do a refresh, but this worked for me.

    Surface Pro 3. Did August firmware update and anniversary update via Windows Update. No problems with process, but now:

    1. Cortana is gone. I have only a search icon that opens to "search Windows", no web search. No notebook or Cortana settings. See image.

    2. I can't set up the built-in mic. When I go to its properties and check "listen" I can hear myself, although there seems to be a lot of hiss, but whenever I go to Speech and try to set it up I get "the computer can't hear you"

    3. I tried to do a reset, said OK to the warning about not being able to roll back the update, and it just hung. Rebooted, repeated, hung again. I can't do a reset via Settings.

    Cortana and the mic worked perectly prior, and I depend on both of them for my daily work. Please help!

    The upgrade wasn't too bad on my TPY12

    I lost Cortana after the update, but there is a registry fix.

    Tried to copy a file from a USB stick to a folder that had that file already in it. Choosing 'compare' from the dialog shows the USB version of the file as 'Unknown Date, file size 0 bytes' even though Explorer sees the date and size just fine.

    Drawboard PDF doesn't want to launch since the update. Stuck on "loading application".

    The Mail app just told me "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Outlook cannot display the requested font". 500GB free, 3.9GB of RAM available. Never seen this before

    I've noticed Chrome will sometimes interpret a short touch swipe as a really fast one, moving way further along the page than intended. I never had this before the update, at least not in the past months.

    So a couple of glitches, but no show stoppers.

    On most systems this can be easily fixed, see here.

    Issue: Asus T100TA Transformer - after anniversary update I had no touch screen (not working) and the display driver was not listed in the Device Manager.
    Resolution: Download the chipset SOC driver (With VGA and Camera) from Asus support for Windows 8.1 32bit. Installed fine - all functionality returned. No further updates from MS after install of drivers.

    Hope this helps some Asus T100TA owners.

    The update went smoothly, both downloading and installing. The Mail app now works perfectly but my only niggle is Windows Spotlight; where there should be a photograph, there isn't; just a black screen asking if I like the photo or am not a fan. Hopefully someone will have a solution.

    Does anyone else get insane keyboard lag periodically? It is honestly driving me nuts. I am to a point where I want to get a copy of windows 7 and install it. I never had this problem till some specific build of redstone and now with it out as production it is sad that it's not fixed yet. I can deal with a lot of stuff but this is just driving me bat crazy.

    Where do I select (and thereby go to download) extensions in Edge? Is it not a part of the production ring yet?

    Production, clean install from media creation tool, no files, folders, or settings saved, and I have never been on any inside ring.

    Mail live tile is 'dead' or they disable it? I can not uninstall calendar and mail to fix it. Notifications for mail comes in action center. Any solution?
