    Cortana cannot be uninstalled, nor does it get completely turned off when you click on the Hamburger button. Cortana is deeply embedded into Windows 10. Any attempt to remove it, will end up breaking the OS, since it is a part of the Windows Search Service.
    (Sigh). I'm not going to argue with you; a simple Google search will return numerous results about uninstalling Cortana, and the memory-hogging SearchUI. Doing so without first installing Classic Shell will break the Start menu and searching from the taskbar. Personally, I kind of like Cortana, so I'm not tempted to try the uninstall methods that are out there.
    And, I knew that turning Cortana off doesn't disable it completely; MS would never allow that.
    I still wish her spam message would go away, though. :-(

    This setting of Cortana Tips made the "Get Cortana on your Phone" go away.

    You can still disable cortana and use windows search only with a regedit or group policy. This way you don't have any cortana voice command or even web results won't show up on the search bar results.

    That didn't work for me. I had "All tip suggestions" set to 'Off' before the spam message started showing up.

    +1 for that. I have disabled Cortana with group policy setting.

    Solved!


    I recently had to do a recovery of my system, to OOTB conditions. Finally, the annoying Cortana message is gone! It's too bad that Microsoft insists on cramming their spam down people's throats this way, so that such drastic measures are needed to get rid of it. Although the Cortana message was not the reason for my system recovery, eliminating it was a welcomed side effect.
