Just wondering if others are experiencing this problem after Win 10 Anniversary 1607 version.

1. I apply a screen saver picture and set timer to 1 minute. On return go to login screen.

2. After screen saver is launched and running, I interrupt screen saver and get the login window having a Cortana notification (displayed in the top left) that I never previously set.

3. I left click mouse, notification disappears and login password is prompted for a response.


Is this something new? Why would I get a Cortana notification that I never set?

Any fix to this problem?


I have a XPS 13 laptop.
