    I'm having a hard time getting Cortana to do what I want. I can't search the forums because I'm at work ,and I have to make this quick. Sorry if anyone has made this thread already, but what are some keywords you use to speak to Cortana? For instance I want her to open here drive and start navigation to my home. Is she capable of doing this yet? Are there any specific magic/key words I need to use? What things have you discovered that work, or don't work with Cortana?

    All responses welcome. Please share your experiences with me.

    I think Cortana is experiencing a world of Day One problems. Try it again later. I saw a big difference in performance from this AM to now.

    On the Cortana screen where is says, Something I can do for you? Click on 'see more' to see what voice commands are available.

    When you launch Cortanta, Click on the top right menu> this launches Cortana's Notebook. go to "Places" and enter your home address.

    these are some of the commands to use:
    1. Drive to Home
    2. Navigate to home
    3. what's the traffic like to go to my house/home

    These all work pretty good.
    by default this will launch Here Drive. If you need to change that, go to Map Settings and change to your desired navigation app such as Waze etc.
