    Cortana doesn't open programs, does bing search instead


    As the title says, Cortana can not open programs anymore. If I ask her to open anything, for example: "open Spotify", it just gives me web search results for Spotify. I tried different commands: open, launch, start... nothing works. I tried it with many different programs, again nothing opens. Sometimes Cortana will give me an error message that something went wrong. But most of the time it will perform a web search on the program that I told her to open. It does respond properly to other queries such as "what's the temperature outside". It used to work fine until several days ago. Does anyone know any fixes for this? I have Windows 10 Pro version 1909 (OS Build 18363.535)

    Thanks,

    S

    :)
