I have just decided to give Cortana a trial:

 

I have read many posts explaining how to turn this and that off in Cortana (negative), but nothing on what command words should be used to get Cortana to load programs/browsers/wash the dishes etc.

 

Could someone who knows, please post a list of useful command words and an explanation of what they are used for?  Or maybe point me (us) to an existing  list? Thanks!
