How to Use Cortana Even When Your Device is Locked

Cortana can help you out with some tasks even if your device is locked, including setting a timer, playing music, or taking a quick note. This feature is on by default, but you can turn it off at any time.

If your question requires launching an application, Cortana will prompt you to unlock your device.

How to enable Cortana on the Windows 10 lock screen

1. Press Windows + I keys to open Settings app.

2. Click on Cortana.

3. The required Settings opens. In the left panel, you will find an option called Talk To Cortana.

4. In the right pane, turn on Use Cortana even when my device is locked.

5. Also turn on Let Cortana access my calendar, email, messages, and other content data when my device is locked.

To use Cortana on the lock screen, tap Cortana or say "Hey Cortana." (The “Hey Cortana” feature allows you to access Cortana with your voice and can be turned on in Cortana’s settings.) If you don’t see Cortana’s icon on your lock screen on Windows, go to Settings  > Personalization > Lock screen, set your background to Picture or Slideshow, and turn on Get fun facts, tips, and more from Windows and Cortana on your lock screen.
