    How can I remove Cortana Search from my Taskbar permanently?


    Hi again -

    So many questions!

    How can I remove the Cortana Search Box from my Taskbar permanently (with the option of reversal)?
    I tried turning off Cortana Settings, yet the Search Box remains. Am I missing something?

    Ideas appreciated, thanks. :)
