    Disable Web Search in Taskbar in Windows 10 Version 2004

    Thank you for posting this link, it worked for me. Search results appear much faster now. By the way, I didn't need to reboot the machine, restarting Explorer was enough.

    Forgive me for the off-topic rant, but Microsoft should re-implement an on/off toggle for web results, or at least show internet queries on Web tab only. Guess Redmond want to shove Bing down Windows users' throats, if I wanted web results I would use a browser to do so.

    I'm no where near as experienced as some of you folk. I'm on Win 10 (1909), and I just disabled web search in WinAero Tweaker. Worked fine for me.

    Maybe someone can test in May 2004 update.

    No need to use a 3rd party program when you can do it using the tutorial with built-in settings on the first post.

    Manually adding the DWORD (and rebooting/signing out) didn't work, but applying your regkey did the trick, thank you Shawn. I stand corrected, this is definitely a superior solution to the PowerShell script, as the Web tab is removed altogether from the search box.

    I noticed the OP post mentions this tutorial is no longer compatible with 1909. I went out on a limb, as I'd done this reg modification (or something quite close to it?) on 1803 back in the day. Got a new system with 1909, applied the *.reg file, and it's...seemingly working.

    I've rebooted twice and it's kept on working.

    Is this lucky behavior?

    Great news. We'll have to see if others report the same.

    I can also confirm that it works on 1909

    Perfect. I added 1909 to the notes at the top of the tutorial.

    Hi Shawn,

    I've just migrated to version 2009 (20H2), and I followed your tutorial to turn off the web result in Search, but there's no key named “Explorer” !???

    Do I have to create the “Explorer” key ?

    Thank You for your answer
