    I'm 99% sure we can set up a hotkey for JoyCon to trigger Cortana as well.

    Edit:
    Win+Q = Cortana Cards
    Win+S = Cortana Search

    Still looking for a way to directly access Cortana Voice Search.

    Yeah. That's the one.



    Edit:
    Just for the record, I think I tried that, but it was before I had linked an MS account.

    I have one of those Griffin Powermate's that I use for a main windows volume control. I rarely use it's default push button feature for mute, because it's just as easy to turn the volume down. Since I hardly use this feature, I wonder how hard it would be to program the push to activate cortina?

    What version of windows do you use that powermate with?

    The Powermate is working fine on windows 10 pro in my car. I just did the windows 10 upgrade from windows 7 pro yesterday. Not only is it still working as a volume control, but the extra feature of press for mute and press again to resume volume is still working.

    How did you get it working in win 7? 64 bit version? It crashed out in ours and Griffin Tech does not list support beyond Vista.

    I used the "PowerMate_1-5-3D.exe" driver with Windows 7 64 bit. It works fine on my Jetway NF9G-QM77 Motherboard.
