    Cortana voice recognition on button click

    Hi everyone,

    I recently upgraded my media center to Windows 10, because I wanted to use Cortana. Basically, what I want to do is, press a button on my remote and then "talk" to Cortana.

    However I cannot find any hotkey, that essentially does the click on the "listen" button next to the Cortana search filed in the task bar. Do you guys know of any hotkey, I can map on my remote?

    Another option for me, would be to use the windows messaging system to fire the event message myself. However, I do not known the message name for this event yet. Is there anywhere to look it up?

    Thanks for your help.


    NOTE: I do not want to use passing speech recognition (having Cortana listen for "Hey Cortana") due to privacy concerns.

    Win + C should be the hotkey to activate cortana speech recognition.
