    Cortana Can Not Be Turned Off In The Windows 10 Anniversary Update


    Microsoft has removed the option to disable Cortana in the upcoming Windows 10 anniversary update.

    Not that much more to be said really. For Windows 10 Pro users it seems like it will be possible to disable Cortana using a group policy (and home users will be able to disable Cortana using a registry edit), but I think it is asinine that we should have to dig around in group policies and the registry to disable it.

    Microsoft is once again proving that they do not want to give users control over their own computer. I would not be surprised if the group policy and registry edit gets removed in a future update either.
    I wonder how the Microsoft Defense Force will defend this move.

    Microsoft makes Cortana unkillable in Windows 10 Anniversary Update -- but you can disable her
