How do I stop cortana from starting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had previously disabled cortana, however a recent update has revived it and removed the setting to disable it. How do i stop the damn thing from starting in the first place without affecting the functionality of other items such as windows search?

    Is there a way of removing it from the boot list?

  • It's not on the startup list

    right Click on Cortana, go to Cortana and select hidden

    Go into Settings, search for Cortana, adjust settings, wont shut down service, if you want, you can try regedit an delete Cortana values, I wouldn't recommend this option...
