    How to Get Rid of Cortana Search Application Bar?

    For some reason this application bar keeps on popping up on Cortana when I search things, anyone know how to get rid of it?
    Screenshot here: (the icons on the top above 'best match' is what I'm talking about)

    Try this. The second icon from the left (It looks like a gear) is "Settings." Click it, and choose Cortana and Search Settings. See if your first choice is "On." If so, turn it Off.

    Otherwise, you'll have to experiment with the Search Settings to see if you can get rid of them.

    When Cortana is set to default, the icons you see appear on top of your tile choices. Since you are going to have icons anyway, I wouldn't worry about it. At least they work.
