    Thanks for the link. As much as I am a Cortana Fanboy, I still 100% believe in user choice. They could of just put an explanation with a "More" link in Cortana's set up, and gave the uses the information when making their choice, and not made it impossible.
    I wonder if this is ONLY for Cortana, or also for Windows Search(Cortana turned off).

    For now, only applies to Cortana search.
    Have a look at this article
    Windows 10 will no longer let you Google search from Cortana
    http://www.theverge.com/2016/4/28/11...tana-bing-edge
    excerpt:
    As the company explained in a blog post, "the only way we can confidently deliver this personalized, end-to-end search experience is through the integration of Cortana, Microsoft Edge and Bing." Google and other search engines will still be accessible through a conventional browser search.
