Hello my name is***** do not rate until we are finished. I look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem. They normally read the "details" part of the file rather than the direct name. Right click on a song in the folder and click properties. On the top click details. Fill this information out if it is blank. Then try Cortana and Groove. Depending on where you got the music this will already be filled out. I would test it with one song to make sure it works first. If this did not work, please come back and let me know what happened when you tried it by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue. If it did work, please don’t forget to leave a positive rating by clicking the stars/smileys - it is greatly appreciated.
I apologize but I need to opt out and open this to all experts as I do not know of any other reason it would do this.
It should find it in the music folder on the local drive.
however it only works on voice commands you cant type in the search box.
AND its not that great at voice recognition.
this seems to be a common problem with cortana which like every other new microsoft program is basically in beta test mode when its given to the public
one suggestion i found is that you have to say "PLAY xxxx" where xxxx is your song. like 10 times before it finally understands the PLAY part
one last suggestion is if you upgraded rather than purchased the computer with win 10 on it than it might not be the correct music folder or it may not have a good index for it.
you can try emptying the standard win 10 music folder and re copying everything into it.
also make sure that the windows media player does a search and can find them all since that is pretty likey to be what it is looking at when it goes to play something
It seems to come down to the way the files are indexed. Cortana insists that they be indexed by content.
This post has a whole bunch of stuff on it and a few possible solutions
OK let me know please
