Scottsdale, AZ – November 14, 2016: Disabling Cortana is now not as simple as it was. This is because the toggle switch has been removed with the Windows 10 Anniversary Updates. It has to be manually disabled through the registry editor, Jupiter Support, a remote tech support organization said.

Jupiter Support lays out the manual process to disable Cortana, as follows:

  1. Press the Windows button and R on your keyboard to open the Run window

  2. In the window, type regedit and click OK

  3. Using the path tree in the left of the Registry Editor – navigate to the following path

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows S

  1. if you do not have the ‘Windows Search’ path you will need to create by following these steps

  2. Right-click on the ‘Windows’ path click on ‘New’ then ‘Key’

  3. Enter the name – Windows Search

  4. Right-click on the ‘Windows Search’ path and click on ‘New’ then‘DWORD (32-bit) Value’

  5. Enter the name – AllowCortana
