    Hello friends,

    We're currently working on a list of some lesser-known Cortana commands and we'd love (if you don't mind divulging) to know your secrets.

    Thanks!

    Cale

    This might be a difficult one as Microsoft can trial new commands for some regions (typically USA) that won't work elsewhere and then remove them again. Some are only meant to be temporary for a particular event.

    I'm sure there are quite a few that stick around that we dont know about. I also use Cortanium which enables more commands.

    If we ask for directions on our PC, Cortana will send the directions to our phone also. Tried that feature when my laptop was running preview builds. But, now i can't risk my laptop as i'm using it for my work.

    I would also be interested in a list like this. I use Cortana for a few simple things, but I'd like to really get the full experience.

    If we have enough people, can we train her some new commands?

    I'm surprised this list doesn't have more.

    Here are some:
    Cortana, tell me a joke.
    Cortana, sing a song
    Cortana, do you like dogs?
    Cortana, will you marry me?
    Cortana, knock knock
    Cortana, what do you think of Siri?
    Cortana what do you think of halo
    Cortana, why are you blue?

    I asked cortana to call my "wife" on my phone and she did. The creepy part is that she called my "wife", even though I do not have (my wife) labeled or tagged as my wife anywhere. I just have her saved with her name (different last name), although the same address. Creepy but kinda cool.

    Oh, interesting, since in Windows 10 she lost the capability to have aliases that it had in Windows 8.1. You could set up aliases for your contacts and also could tell her who your family members are, IIRC.

    Looks like Cortana doesn't have many secrets? (Or they are really good secrets !)
