With a corner window I am using two curtain tracks.?
One of my corner windows is 110 cm wide and the other corner window is 170 cm wide and they but up to each other in the middle. with a full glass window view. I want to fit draw cord curtains that will just open the whole of each windows curtain to the left side and right side only using each cord separately. Normally you would be pulling two curtains apart whereas I will be pulling the whole curtain of each window to the left and right side only. I have purchased Tribeca Essentials cord drawn extendable tracks. How do I do this please?

I do not think it possible to do what you wish to do - each individual curtain panel - the left one and the right one - will need to have turn round wheels for the cord - either at the place where the rails butt together (ugly and not practical) or at the extreme end of the other rail - not so ugly but just as impractical
Curtain draw cords are a continuous loop - pull in different up/down directions for opening and closing. To do as you wish will require two loops - one loop for each curtain.
Draw cords going around bends in the tracks are also very difficult to achieve - you might do well to consider good quality tracks and conventional opening and closing.
You might try to draw it out on the back of an envelope - the route of the cords - and see the impractical nature of it.
