    I've found best way. Revert back to windows 8.1 For those of us that still can anyway.

    It's not windows 7, but better than windows 10

    Hello @Brink,

    Using an elevated cmd prompt or a Batch script, would this also work? . . .

    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search" /v BingSearchEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search" /v AllowCortana /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\FirewallRules" /v "{2765E0F4-2918-4A46-B9C9-43CDD8FCBA2B}" /t REG_SZ /d "BlockCortana|Action=Block|Active=TRUE|Dir=Out|App=C:\windows\systemapps\microsoft.windows.cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\searchui.exe|Name=Search and Cortana application|AppPkgId=S-1-15-2-1861897761-1695161497-2927542615-642690995-327840285-2659745135-2630312742|" /f

    No, I am not at my test machine at home until tomorrow, but I thought that @Brink would immediately see if there was a problem!

    The post came about because I was going through some of my old files and came across it. I have put that together from searching the Internet for a method that used either the CMD line or a Batch script.

    I think you should have run it before submitting it to Brink. I have never submitted a command/code/script to him without running it first.

    I have NOT submitted it.

    I have asked him a question as to whether he thought it would work or NOT Matthew!
    If he doesn't think it will, I am sure he will supply a reason why!
    It is a question, NOT a submission!

    Hello Paul,

    I haven't tested it, but it looks good to:

    Line 1: Disable Bing in Windows Search.

    Line 2: Disable Cortana.

    Line 3: Add Windows Defender Firewall rule to block Cortana.

    I will test it at some stage this week. If it is OK, then feel free to add it to the Tutorials.
