    1) that's a personal choice if you think any personal assistant is worth it. In my personal experience, they are stupid and clumsy and don't understand what I tell them 90% of the time and I don't give a darn about the usual commands like "Hey *insert name of useless personal assistant here*, what's the weather today?"

    2) Anything you ask the assistant is sent to Microsoft, you may not care but some people do.

    3) search? search what? Disabling Cortana doesn't mean you don't have search, look at the image above where I showed you how there is a search built in to the Open Search Start Menu.

    4) Speaking of search, try this experiment.

    Go to your This PC (Explorer), in the top right, type *.pdf and hit enter, then start counting how many seconds it takes Windows to locate all PDF files on your computer with its magical Windows Search Indexing Service.

    It would take north of 50 seconds to complete the full search on an SSD.

    Now try installing Everything which doesn't even rely on the Windows Search Indexing service and do the same test, it would take literally 0.5 seconds to find every PDF file. That's just one example.

    Finally, do what you wish, it's your computer but just sayin....

    yeah OK....I'm a rookie with windows 10 miss windows 7....so your saying it will speed up the computer by disabling it?

    I personally have nothing to hide and couldn't care less if microsoft hears what im saying. I'll disable search indexing and see what that does to performance, I thought it means disabling the search box on the bottom left. i disabled all services I didnt need and when I search in that box for say intel graphics control panel it takes less than half a second not 50 seconds, but I digress I think we are talking about two completey different search features...

    your the expert, I come here to learn...not to argue and be put down for enjoying something someone else does not...we are all entitled to our opinions and when someones opinion is not the exact same as yours just nod and smile you know. here in canada and the western side of the world we learn these basic social skills in grade 1 and 2. not so sure about the far east..

    but watch....I agree with you I digress, i'll take your advice as I know you know what your talking about. so Thanks

    Useful? ORLY? How so?

    Cortana is NOT a necessary component for Windows Search to function. It's just a gimmick piece of crap to assist the Redmond Retards with data collection and their ever-advancing privacy invasion quest. Windows Search works flawlessly with Cortana completely removed.

    Sure, it seems cool like something geeky from a corny sci-fi movie, but Cortana, the AI digi-slut is no bueno. The Micro$lop Digi-Nazis probably felt like they needed something to compete in their battle for the Stupidity Crown against the likes of the other digi-sluts, Alexa and Siri. But, they're all just worthless AI tramps.

    Oh no what you are doing is application search which is very easy on any system since Windows is only looking in a few places (app installed locations) so. The search I was talking about is a system wide search like searching for a particular document, photo, etc. I didn't say disable the Indexing Service. I don't disable any services on my computer other than the "Connected user experiences and telemetry service" because I found that disabling other services provides no performance benefits and might only cause Event Log viewer non-stop logs of this or that thing not working.

    As for the app search you are talking about, that is fine to keep my only gripe is with Cortana, not the fact that I care or not about Microsoft knowing anything about me but I just don't like being spied on if you know what I mean. To each his own off-course.

    The more people use the Cortana spybox, the more Info will they collect about you and your computer usage. Drag it further.... The more people use it, more of similar trash will be added into Win 10. = Double tragedy for the OS users. There is no limits how to destroy the OS!

    I dunno about you bro but I personally think that if I was going to use an assistant, Google Assistant stomps over them all. Understands almost anything even when you talk to it using natural language and can do way better things than telling you the weather, it can be taught who is your wife for example (from your contact list) then send her an SMS or call or schedule a meeting or setup an alarm or tell you the time when you're half asleep and don't want to reach to your phone to unlock it. But using Cortana just tell you the weather is just meh. My opinion offcourse use what you like but what I'm saying is, if you were going to use a digital personal assistant, at least choose a decent one (ie. your phone).

    If you like it then just leave it alone. I don't have any use for it, but that doesn't mean someone else doesn't. I don't think any less of you if your opinion is different than mine.

    I don't like any of them... Cortana, Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant. I'd rather just enter my search information the old fashioned way and not have any kind of stupid AI crap "helping" me.

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/25118-enable-disable-cortana-windows-10-a.html

    The main point of my last post was to clarify that Cortana is NOT a necessary component of Windows 10 and if the Redmond Retards were interested in making people happy they would make removing Cortana the Digi-Slut a simple one-click nuke-it operation. But, they're Nazis and don't give a rat's butt about the people that don't want their bloatware trash.

    Probably GPE will do it. But, it won't get rid of the CPU-clock-sucking Cortana service crap. It will still be running and leeching resources that could be used for something more important.

    This should also work for folks using Windoze OS X Home for Dummies Edition

    If you really want to be rid of the cancer, install Windows 10 2019 LTSC or use this: https://winaero.com/blog/how-to-uninstall-and-remove-cortana-in-windows-10/

    and, while you're at it, use this, too... https://winaero.com/blog/how-to-uninstall-and-remove-edge-browser-in-windows-10/
