How to Find your Windows 10 Mobile using Cortana & Windows 10 PC

by Ashish


When Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 Build 14322 for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, a lot of features were enabled for Cortana. One of the most important change is the ability to find your Lost or Misplaced Windows 10 Mobile using Cortana. This feature is much easier to use compared to the web option Microsoft has in place under Microsoft devices.

How is it compared to Google’s option to Find your Phone through web search? Its basically the same to be very honest, but the implementation is drastically different. While Google uses its Web Search to implement it, Microsoft is enhancing the users experience by implementing these features with Cortana, and making it work natively with apps.

Basic Requirement:

 Step by Step:

Whats on the Map?

If your phone is out of reach, it will make sense to locate it on the map. When the minim map appears on your PC screen, click for an enlarged view. Then you can find your direction to the location or at least get an idea where you could have left it.

I hope in future, Microsoft will let find phones that belong to our family members, and they are in our Microsoft Account. That way, I can use the phone to figure out where it is.

That said, this feature doesn’t 100% guarantee that you will find your phone, in case it has moved or stolen away. That is something only security or police in your country can help with. However, it does make sure that you still have a chance to find it.
