    PC Search function after deleting Cortana


    If I take ownership and delete Cortana from Windows/SystemApps will my search function on the taskbar still work (that is, search within the PC)?

    Nope, unless you installed a third-party program to replace the functionality of Cortana.

    Thanks. I am happy enough disabling it so that the search function is limited within the PC itself.
