Cortana on Windows 10 is your personal digital assistant that can perform an array of tasks, and while most people use it to get weather and traffic information, track packages, create appointment reminders, you can also use the assistant to keep tabs of things you put away around the house. In this Windows 10 guide, you’ll learn the steps to use Cortana to always remember where you left your stuff using specific settings when creating reminders.

Cortana photo reminders can help you keep tabs of whatever

While Cortana always included the feature to create reminders, starting with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the assistant introduces a few new improvements, including the ability to skip date and time and add a picture to reminders. These new options can help you to create specific reminders that you can use to track anything around the house. For example, for things that you don’t use every day, you can simply create a picture reminder. If you want to be reminded where you left something (e.g., Halloween decorations or Christmas lights) months from now, you can create a picture reminder with a date and time, so Cortana can let you know as the holidays approach. In addition, thanks to Cortana cross platform ability, you don’t need to carry around your laptop or webcam to take a picture. You can actually use the Cortana app on your tablet, Windows 10 Mobile, Android, and iOS device to create photo reminders.
