Funny questions to ask Cortana

If you've got Windows 10, you'll have discovered Cortana when you first clicked on the search box. We've put together a guide on how to get the most from Cortana. Alternatively you may have a Windows Phone and have used Cortana for months. The digital assistant is pretty sophisticated and can almost understand natural language so you don’t have to learn commands as with Siri on the iPhone and Google Now on Android devices.

You can ask about the weather, for example, in many different ways such as "What's the weather going to be like this weekend?", "Weather forecast for the weekend", "Will I need an umbrella this weekend?" and Cortana knows what you mean.

But as Apple has done with Siri, Microsoft has given Cortana dozens of amusing replies: you just need to know which questions to ask. We've got 40 great questions here - the answers are in the pictures. But she usually has several different responses, so try asking again and see what happens.

(Thanks to all who have commented - most of your suggestions are now added!)

We took the screenshots on a Windows Phone, but the questions work in Windows 10 (pictured) too.
