    How about just turning off the Search icon/box and then pinning the All users Start menu / Search to the taskbar.?

    Taskbar -> Properties -> Toolbars -> Search on the taskbar : Disabled

    I guess my underlying intention was to direct this method toward those that didn't want Cortana or Bing results to make an appearance whatsoever but, I couldn't find the thread so, I posted the method here.
