On Windows 10 the files will be found by Cortana
In the past few hours, Microsoft has kicked off the distribution of the Insider Preview Build 20270 of Windows 10, a preview version of the operating system intended for Insiders on the Dev Channel. In addition to the inevitable bugfixes, there is a novelty linked to the Cortana virtual assistant, the one that allows you to rely on its AI to find files and documents, even if saved on the OneDrive cloud.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20270: Cortana is back

The new version of Cortana, with a markedly business vocation, made its official debut in the spring with the 20H2 update of the platform. The functionality at its debut today in the Preview is fully inserted in this perspective. It should be noted that at least at this time the only supported language is English and that according to the software house, the feature is only active in the United States. Here are some examples of what it can do:

find a file by specifying parts of the name (“Hey Cortana, open your marketing plan”); find a file indicating the names of the authors (“Hey Cortana, open Antonio's Excel budget”); find documents edited by the user ("Hey Cortana, find my recent files"); find documents of a specific type (“Hey Cortana, find my recent PDFs”).

Not everyone has appreciated the integration of Cortana in Windows 10 in the past, so much so that many have decided to remove the virtual assistant, so far not able to compete on equal terms with competitors Google Assistant, Siri from Apple and Alexa from Amazon. Microsoft's efforts now to make it a useful technology for professionals could give it new life.
