This way, you can personalize Cortana experience by changing the voice command “Hey Cortana” to anything from “Dear Lord” to “Hello Dolly” or anything you can possibly think of.

Once you’ve configured the new name and phrase, you can minimize the app and allow it to run in the system tray. The app is simple to use and does not changes or alters default search settings of Cortana in any way. It silently resides in the background. You can even set it to run at every Windows boot.
