    Just my opinion, you are probably gonna spend more time trying to find the specific reg edit than it would to backup and clean install, or another method.

    But I could be wrong, good luck to whatever you do.

    NOT gonna clean install. NOT ever!

    Guess I will keep nag and complain to Microsoft that they really need to put out a Cortana fix tool!

    TBCH, I am very surprised they don't have such tool yet and I have to even complain about this matter in the first place. Cortana is such an important part of the OS and people have issues with it's registry can't get it to run.

    Guess they don't care that much about users using Cortana or not.

    And, for those of you want to get rid of Cortana, It's as easy as deleting the whole registry of

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search]

    When you corrupt that, Cortana is gone, like mine.


    I myself DON'T know how mine went away, one day it was just gone and that part, or another part of the registry on Cortana got missing or corrupted somehow.


    My observations and understanding is that, there are ONLY EASY Cortana registry fix (EnableBingSearch to 1, or AllowCortana to 1) have not seen anyone capable of knowing any expert-level Cortana registry fix yet.

    Maybe someday, even if Microsoft themselves never come out with a Cortana registry fix tool, someone would become an expert on Cortana registry?

    Are you sure? When you open your task manager do you see "Search" or "Cortana"

    This is what it looks like when Cortana is gone.
