    Does anyone know a way to do this?

    AND

    Who's the weirdo at MS that likes to talk to animated circles? /facepalm

    I expect the designer was part of MS's inner circle - lol.

    No thanks Cliff. I don't have cortana fully enabled. I just like to use the built in desktop search on occasion.

    The idea of a virtual assistant is really appealing (Samantha in 'Her') but the knowledge that all the related data is in someone elses possession, not mine, is unacceptable.

    I just want a small visual tweak to my desktop

    Have you tried asking Cortana how to do it ?
