    I seem to have no use for Cortana and was wondering if there was a way to prevent it from starting??

    When I go to Task Manager and end the task it reopens immediately.

    I have no use for this and it's tasking up resources.

    Its using zero percent of my CPUs when not in use, what resources is it using (would guess Win 10 has to start it every time)

    I guess it's not hurting anything.

    I do not have a Mic so it is of no use to me.

    I found an old mic in my parts box, hooked it up and it works great, just adjusted the volume and noise suppersion in Contana.

    Commands by voice are the way to go, I get my Cubs schedule, scores, searches on my HD and website lookups this way.

    I don't use Cortana, but at 0% CPU usage and 0% RAM usage, it does not bother me. Why does it bother you JamesJoey?
