Windows 10: Cortana - Turn On or Off in Windows 10
I lost my search function after renaming the dll file.
Yep, that's why you should use an option in the tutorial to turn off Cortana instead.
I will certainly use your sound advice.
yes i tried even few seconds ago
with location on , now i have the menu ! , hope it won't change my local account to a microsoft account

it was off , now it's on
thanks , i guess that maybe it fixed!
Great news Drugo.
Do you now see this below like in step 4 of OPTION THREE? If so then speech, inking, and typing personalization is on.
i will try to ask to cortana something although I do not expect much from cortana
will it keep my account local?
Yes, your account will remain a local account as long as you didn't switch it.
Ohhhhh you're gonna have fun now drugo, but after a while you'll see how useful she is. say you're busy with the hands, and want to send a short email, or walk into the room get the weather, play music, reminders... etc. all hands free.
I just tried renaming the .dll it with current build 10586 that has same effect as renaming searchui.exe which is it breaks search in startmenu
Either way I have Cortana disabled every i can think of short of renaming it, and Searchui.exe and Com surrogate seem to be hitting the cpu for 8-10% from both processed every few minutes. Searchui.exe use to be suspend majority of the time, now it almost never suspend and in an 8 hour up time, that pc running per day, cortana has about 1hour of usage... I have it block from sending data threw firewall, but even if unblock it searchui.exe is running to often.
Seriously would love it if MS would always us to disable searchui.exe all together without killing startmenu search. only thing i found to get around this cortana/searchui.exe bs is to use Win10 enterpise that has noo APP or windows store. if search function with out cortana/searchui.exe in enterprise version so there no reason why it cant be done in home/pro.. I had no problem with cortana/searchui.exe being load when it was suspend majority of the time but now it rarely suspend and eating cpu % way to frequently it doing something i cant fiqure out what it doing.
Very helpful. I had turned off Cortana a while back and decided to turn it back on. Options 1 and 2 above didn't seem to work, but Option 3 followed by a reboot seemed to do the trick.
