    I have windows 10 home. I don't need cortana. I don't like cortana. I don't want cortana. Is there any way I can turn it off?

    The easiest thing is simply ignore it. Worst case.. it uses about 40Mb RAM.

    You can hide the search bar on the task bar if you wish.

    Also see the Tutorial section here, which you're free to browse and search,

    It's hard for me to ignore. But thanks anyway.

    I have nothing visible on my screen to do with Cortana; only if I deliberately hit Windows key + S, say, does Cortana appear. But then, don't use Win 10's start menu either...
