http://bit.ly/1KIFuKV Using Local Group Policy Editor in Microsoft Windows 10, it is possible to completely disable Cortana, without it restarting, and without editing the registry, or making forced changes. #cortana #windows10

Additional notes 2015-11-15:
It is true that this process disabled Cortana, but does not remove the process. This is still an effort that people are working on and discussing. If you wish to join in further on that discussion, we have an open thread at https://windowsforum.com/threads/how-to-properly-disable-cortana-in-microsoft-windows-10.211998 for this issue.
If you do not have Windows 10 Pro and are using Home or Core edition, you will not have access to Local Group Policy. For those users, this solution will not work at all. FYI.
i cant fucking believe this shit
Mine is still running after turning it off
You CANNOT type in gpedit in the search window and get to the appropriate window it only takes you to the bing search engine.
none of the options you mention take me to local group policy editor? Do i need to download something confused?
I think I Love you ! THANKS !!!
this video is useless thanks
HERE IS A EASIER WAY, now pay attention. Open your task manager> Scroll down to find Cortana> right click, open file location> now rename this file to anything you'd like> it should say you're not allowed to do this.> end Cortana is task manager then quickly rename it, and TADA she's no longer sucking up your plebs ram.
I followed your 3 year old video to the "T"....windows 10 must have made too many changes since your video because I cannot get rid of her! I have a new windows 10 laptop ...2019.
legit! all i am saying
Cortana is gone from my task manager, but it still hasn't gone away yet
Don't work for me
Why block cortana when you have the devil's brother installed, google crome
Does not work! At 5:25 when you checked the Task Manager, Cortana was still taking up CPU and Memory. I thought that was the point, in disabling it.
After you have done this, go to the windows start menu , right click it, Cortana, hide. This will hide it from your start menu.
This doesn't work.
Gpedit doesn't exist
This works very well. thank you.
I want to enable because i fisabled
how do I get cortana back, if I deleted it through a executabe off the Internet :D???
I really just want the Search bar you had before the anniversary update back ._.
Mike, you have just claimed the title of the "Fastest to fail solution to a problem on You Tube."
As instructed I typed gpedit.msc into the search box and the result was a a regular web page with just about anything with those letters in the name. That's as far as I got. I tried many times and as dumb as I'm sure you think I am, never got any further.
I should have quit at the point when you dissed other people.
My father taught me "When you throw dirt at other people all you do is lose ground." Perhaps you can redeem yourself by coming up with a solution that works.
start 10 trial i want
Dude, your video is a waste because the font is so small can't make out what you're doing, sorry !
Its Not Working
This doesn't work. I have Windows 10 Pro.
Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Search ... but search doesnt exist in my gpedit.msc..... im on windows 10 and how to install some program to be able to use group policy... then because i have 64 bit computer i had to configure some files between wow64 and system32... i did everything but gpedit.msc did not exist in wow64.... but gpedit did so i copy and pasted that... if anyone understands this and knows how to fix it so i can get to the search option and get rid of fucking cortana please help me cuz its slowing my computer down
this did not work for me. she is still running and now has background task host as well
gpedit is gone on 1803. Fuck microsoft
I watched this entire video to realize that the local policy editor only comes on windows pro, not windows home... great
Where can I get that background?
I did it exact Win Home 10 and Cortana disabled for a few minutes in Task Manager and then came back with a vengeance! I'm convinced Windows keeps renewing ways to keep it going, because they don't want it disabled!
she belongs to skynet!! she comes back! scary
did everything stroke by stork and it worked thank you :) no more cortana
It worked, thank you. :)
Don't work my friend, your tutorial is suks
Fuck Yeah...... This is Work 100%

Idid it incorrectly and now,,, My computer it TOAST!!!!
the bottom line is... NEVER MESS WITH THE .......https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U78iAem3uo&ab_channel=LowellVanderpool
Shame one me,guys.
Rookies beware. Yes,I should have never messed with it!
I'll see you in 2 weeks,maybe.
When I try to type gpedit.msc, it sends me to Bing websites.
How do I get to the screen you are demonstrating?
doesn't work in 2017
Thanks for your efforts Mike.
Apparrently, Microsoft has over-ridden this procedure (maybe with service updates)
Everything goes just like you said until I open search. And Cortana greets me like nothing happened.
I, personally, will never buy a Microsoft product again.
No wait it didnt work
to turn cortana back on set the data value to 1. warning if you do turn of cortana your computer will experience issue with speed and how well it runs just so everyone onow
i cant open file location for cortana in task manager.... help
Hey Mike! Thanks for the vid! However, I noticed when you opened your task manager, your Disk was at %1... I'm at %100 unfortunately. Can you tell me how you managed to get yours down all the way to a staggering %1. I got to tell you, its not fun when your laptop is heating up all the time! PLEASE your help is greatly appreciated.
I have to laugh at people that complain about privacy yet use Google Chrome as a web browser.
there is no 'administrative...'
this guy really enjoining himself
my computer does not have the gpedit file.. go figure.. any other solutions?
A much easier way that actually works https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfyqFafSVxM
this worked for me: http://www.filedropper.com/notana by by cortana
Thanks, it worked
EASiest would be just change language to default then boom won't open shiet it's gonna change to a regular search bar / button
EXCELLENT!!, Guys like you make it possible to use Windows 10 without the BS, Thanks!!!!!!

So I did everything But Cortana is still in task manager and coming back. It says she is "disabled by company policy" But she is still coming back. She is not using CPU but she is using 38.2 MB memory still. Got any Idea why?
Windows 10 is such a piece of shit
The search window returned BUT it is still running in my [email protected]#$^%&*!!!!
Yes!! it is Done!! thank you. Cortana completely disabled.
how to enable again
Please disregard my previous comment it was meant for "TikTokPCTech!"
Yes I have a question can you disable cortana while you talk to pal talk please tell me how to do that
its still running in my task manager
Aaaahh the beauty's of having no MIC/cam hard installed. LOLOLOL Peep call me the dinosaur.
not working at all
its still there
and on right click "open file location" is disable...
A sure way to prevent cortana to ever touch your laptop is during a clean installation you will be prompted to choose which region. choose Philippines or other region where cortana is not available. I recommend choosing Philippines. And see the result the cortana is nowhere to be found. You can go back to United States region after the whole installation is done!
for home users just use the regedit and forget about it :D
