    Cortana opening apps

    Just installed my microphone and tried hey coratana and i am less than impressed, I thought cortana could open all modern apps, but for most all i get when isay hey cortana open news or sports and most others is a web search. Is this correct? also how do i get coratana to search my files? again it just opens a web search

    I just tried it with "Hey Cortana open Notepad." and it worked fine. Worked with Photoshop too. I just wish it brought them to the foreground. The app opens but I have to click it on the taskbar to actually see it.

    It is working for some apps but not others, won't open chrome or firefox or even msn sports or news

    It opens every single app for me with the exception of Firefox. But I hardly use Firefox, so it doesn't bother me.
