    [Help] Cortana translucent box appears always on top, even in games.


    A transparent/translucent embossed box the size and location of the cortana search bar appears on desktop and in games or apps, at all times and always on top. I tried disabling everything cortana related, even tried to fiddle with regedit and I cannot get rid of it, its extremely annoying particularly as its visible on the monitor while gaming.

    I have this on 3 different PCs.

    All running windows 10.

    Here is two of them.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi, what is your Windows build? Win key + r, winver
    Sadly it's not a forum requiement so we have to keep asking....

    Have you tried this?

    Since search and Cortana were separated in build 1903, Cortana is voice activated only. For me it appears like this:

    Does this box appear if you do a clean boot? (Google if unsure how or see the relevant tutorial here).
