    cannot rename cortana folder

    I want to disable cortana.
    When i kill process and i try to rename it, when process is not running, i still get message access denied on administrator account.
    This used to work.
    Any ideas please ?

    Personally I never encounter it. I use a replacement start menu with its own search box, so it never bothers me. But should I wish to experiment, it's still there.

    If i disable cortana, using gpedit.msc searchui.exe is still running.

    And that second link doesn't work, i created batch file and it says access denied same as when i try rename folder manually.

    It used to work, but it doesn't anymore apparently, i have build 17.134 PRO

    Note Brink's post #34 on SearchUI.exe in the thread I posted, and post #40.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Naturally you could hack it by booting to an offline command prompt, or booting from a boot disk such as Kyhi's (Software and Apps Section)

    Hey empleat,
    Been awhile since I tried disabling Cortana using that second link. IIRC I had to disable Windows Search (Wsearch) and kill explorer, otherwise Cortana would restart before I could execute the other commands from command prompt and I would get access denied because the process was in use.

    Note: Remember to re-enable Windows Search

As the title says. I can right-click on a folder in Edge favorites and click rename. Once the new name is typed in there seems to be no way to save it. No matter what I do it reverts to the previous name. Is it like this for everyone else? Jim
