Windows 10: Whete is the option to disable web search results? Solved

    Whete is the option to disable web search results?


    I am trying to sort out a problem here.
    Two of my PC's have recently started to include web results in the search, which is something I don't want.
    It may well be that I forgot to disable that feature when I first installed Win 10. However, I now can't find the disable.
    I am certain there was a menu option in earlier versions but it seems to have gone.

    Hi, if you are talking about Cortana search, then also (following jrolson's post above) please consider using the filters at the top of the box: (e.g. via Windows key + S)

    You will get search results focussed on the filter you select.

    Fantastic, thank you. That works perfectly.
    Now I have to note all that down in my list of "1001 Things to do to make Windows 10 more tolerable"
