Windows 10: Command path for Cortana/Search and Connect in Creators Update

    Command path for Cortana/Search and Connect in Creators Update


    Greetings everyone.

    I'm looking for the system location of the command that invokes the search panel when Cortana is clicked - which is also the same command that is invoked when the Taskbar "Search Icon" is clicked.

    I would also like to find the location of the command that invokes the Miracast panel when the "Connect" app in the start menu is clicked. The objective is to put both commands in the Desktop Context menu.

    My utmost gratitude in advance.

    The CLSID for Search/Cortana is: explorer shell:::{2559a1f8-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0},

    I'm not sure about Connect.

    Thank you very much Edwin.

    Forgive me, what is the navigation path to that command?

    Dalchina thank you for being generous with your time.
    I use/used Ultimate Windows Context Menu.

    Do you know the command for "Connect"? (Miracast feature).

    It's not there.
    Incidentally, the last post in the thread is a person asking about the Miracast command.

    Was the Miracast command ever figured out?
