    Disable Cortana??


    How do you disable this?? I used a registry hack but still no good. I want to be able to search without this

    This is after the new 1607 update.

    A lot of reports before the update stated that Cortana was no longer removable. I had it switched off using the various UI options and it is not showing, and we have a lot of users stating that it is no longer working. It's early days with this version an update may be in the works to at least get all systems to the same state but it is just a case of waiting.

    Managed to sort it via a hack. I had to 'kill it' first via task manager, then apply the hack! :)

    Does the search still work, when you murdered her?! Just wondering, I thought, that Cortana = Search.

    Way I understand it now there are multiple parts to Cortana, it's both the search engine and the low level AI speech engine, It was at one time possible to easily disable it all but now some parts are not switched so need some extra engineering to turn off
