Cortana knows you even better with REACHit.REACHit makes it possible for Cortana to do more for you, like remember when you were working on a file, what device you were on, who emailed it to you, or what meeting you were in. And it's available exclusively on Lenovo PCs and Tablets running Windows 10.
Now more powerful than ever.
REACHit enables Cortana to search more places and find things faster - content on Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and multiple email clients, as well as tablets and other PCs connected to your REACHit account.
Spend less time searching.Cortana and REACHit lets you search your digital content using whatever details you remember - you don't even need to know the file name. No more searching multiple folders, logging into different cloud accounts or checking for email attachments.
Less Clicking, browsing, and digging.
Just ask Cortana.
If you know what you're looking for, Cortana can find it with REACHit. Say it out loud or type it in Cortana's search box and you're done. Cortana understands natural language, and gets to know you better the more you use REACHit. So whatever you remember about what you're searching for, just ask Cortana and she'll find it.
Using Cortana and REACHit is as easy as remembering the last time you worked on a file.
When you ask Cortana and REACHit to help you find a file, Cortana will search based on specific things you remember about the last time you saw it, like:
- Where you were
- Who sent it to you
- What device you were on
- Where it's stored
- What it's called
- When you last opened it
- What kind of file it is
- Who you were with
What is Cortana and REACHit?
Cortana and REACHit are actually two apps - Microsoft's Cortana, a personal digital assistant included with Windows 10, and Lenovo's REACHit, an app that lets you connect and search multiple file storage locations in one place. When you put them together, Cortana will find you any content in any storage location that is connected to REACHit.

How is this different than using Cortana by itself?
Cortana searches Microsoft and Windows related locations -
Outlook, OneDrive, your harddrive, etc. So with REACHit, the search
capability is expanded. On top of that, REACHit helps Cortana know more
about the context of when you were using a file, so you can ask her
simple questions, like:
"Find the Christmas photos on Dropbox"
"Where is the proposal I worked on at Starbucks yesterday?"
"Find the presentation I showed Jon last week."
