    How To Remove "Tap and say" From Lock Screen


    Hello,
    How do I remove the "Tap and say" feature from the Lock Screen? It would be useful on a tablet or something, yet this is my Desktop Computer and prefer the Lock Screen to be very minimal with just wallpaper images, the time & the date.

    Thanks

    You would need to go into the System Settings screen.

    Hello pepanee,

    You can turn off Get fun facts, tips, and more from Windows and Cortana on your lock screen in your lock screen settings to stop this.

    Awesome! I found that setting.

    Thank you so much Brink! Good to see you here at the Ten Forums (I remember seeing you and finding you very helpful back at the eight forums).

    =)

    Turning off: "Get fun facts, tips, and more from Windows and Cortana on your lock screen" did not work for me. Do you have another suggestion?

    Perhaps the setting in Cortana settings is the key:
