We need to adjust some settings for optimal use. You can change the brightness and other similair settings in three different ways to optimize the image. Mess with brightness, contrast, etc in your TV’s settings, your graphic card settings, and windows settings. I reduced brightness and increased contrast slightly.
Set your desktop background to black.
Set your power settings to never sleep/hibernate/etc.
Set your second monitor (mirror) to default if you want Cortna’s icon to pop up on it.
Set your second monitor to portrait.
Enable activation via “Hey Cortana” rather than having to click a button.
Optimize your voice recognition by tuning your mic in hardware settings.
Enable activation via “Start Listening” rather than having to click a button.
