    Cortana Help - how to go to open programs


    I have just been playing with Cortana commands and I can open programs fine, like word and excel, but I would like to be able to go directly to an open program - one that is already open by saying go to word, but this just opens another word window. Is this possible?

    Cheers,
    John.

    Cortana won't open programs

    Hi,

    There's a possibility that a software conflict occurs when trying to open a program using Cortana. Since you've already tried the solutions above, we recommend that you reinstall Cortana as an additional troubleshooting. To do this follow the steps below:

    • Open an elevated Command Prompt window by typing cmd in the search bar, then right-click and choose
      Run as administrator.
    • Type start powershell, then press Enter.
    • Run this command, then press Enter: Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Restart your computer.

    Let us know if your concern has been resolved.
