    why does cortana not launch apps like edge, word etc when I ask it to? It merely gives me a list of ways to do it from the Bing web search

    It used to work, a while ago, but now it's hopeless.

    Please let me know

    Thanks

    :)

    What is the difference between cortana and search?

    Cortana is your digital agent. She'll help you get things done.

    One of the major changes to Windows 10 is the presence of Microsoft’s voice assistant, Cortana. Along with voice searches, you will be given “suggestions” that the voice assistant makes. This includes reminders for scheduled events in your calendar, ideas when you are searching the Web for something, alternatives when you are quizzing Cortana for information, and more.
    Here are some things Cortana can do for you:

    • Give you reminders based on time, places, or people.
    • Track packages, teams, interests, and flights.
    • Send emails and texts.
    • Manage your calendar and keep you up to date.
    • Create and manage lists.
    • Chit chat and play games.
    • Find facts, files, places, and info.
    • Open any app on your system.
