SOLVED: How to Disable Cortana Using Group Policy on Windows 10

If you want to disable the Cortana personal search assistant in Windows 10 using Group Policy this is the place for you:

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Search


You can also edit the registry locally:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search

to a DWORD with a value of 0 .  If you set it to 1 or delete the key, Cortana will be enabled.
