    Hello Pathfinder,

    If you like, you could disable Cortana.

    There's no need to try and delete or uninstall Cortana since it's easy to disable without the need of 3rd party programs.

    Trying to do so would most likely cause unknown issues.

    I will follow your advice and leave it be then. before I got this pc, I kept hearing of how Cortana learns of your activities and sends spy like data to Microsoft..thats why I distrust Cortana.

    It's true that Cortana learns of your habits and such so that it can better perform as your personal assistant.

    Luckily, it's easy to disable if one doesn't want to use this feature.
