    How do I turn Cortana on or off on my Xbox One? Cortana provides a wealth of useful capabilities on Xbox One. From inviting friends to parties to timely and unobtrusive notifications, she can do everything. Here's how to enable and disable Cortana on the Xbox One. Note: This method works as of July 13th, 2016 on the most recent Xbox One Preview build. We'll update this article accordingly if the process changes once the Anniversary Update goes public on August 2, 2016. Turning off Cortana will return your Xbox One to the default voice commands, which are triggered by saying "Xbox..." followed by your orders.

Additionally, you will no longer be able to use voice commands via a headset as Cortana will revert to her legacy, Kinect-only implementation. How to turn off Cortana on the Xbox One Double tap the Xbo...

    It's not something that everyone will encounter as a problem, but the dreaded ten Windows 10 device limit for app installations has caught out pretty much everyone who works here. If you, too, run into this, then take note that the Xbox One will now count towards your limit of ten as well. I've just been given the message to remove some devices while setting up a review laptop and on going to sort that out the Xbox One has now found itself sitting atop the list. Since my console is in the preview program and I've been installing apps this last week, that would be where it came from. It's not a total surprise but it is something you'll have to take note of. Especially if you use a lot of different Windows 10 products. The universal store is coming together and we're getting apps across the entire ecosystem. You effectively go down to 9 slots unless you don't want to use apps on your Xbox One. Just something to bear in mind. xbox one helpWindows 10WindowsXbox...
