I searched for the solution but many websites were not up to the mark. Even after trying various solutions, I was unable to disable Cortana. But then, I found on site (sharing below) which solved my problem. I guess, many people would be stuck like I am, so sharing the site. http://itechinspector.com/disable-cortana-in-windows.html

OCR,
Telling how to make it become that way would help. I accomplished something like that many many months ago but forgot how it was done. (post #177)

Windows 10 is fine for most things*, but there are some major negatives to it IMO:

1.) Forced reboots while you're working. I don't care how many times people say "change your active time" or what-have-you, but losing hours of work because I went to take a bathroom break and come back to see my laptop rebooted because "it wasn't be used" is incredibly poor design.

2.) No way to manage updates yourself. Fortunately I've found a way around this - but I shouldn't have had to. Microsoft limits a lot of what you can and can't do on your home workstation with Windows 10.

3.) Windows as a Service is just a bad idea IMO. It's going to set a bad precedent of everything becoming "as a service" meaning you have little to no control over anything you purchase. I see Linux making a huge dent in home computing in the next few years.

I've been transitioning over to Linux over the last year - if I didn't rely on some software that was Windows only (and doesn't work with Wine), I'd have made the switch already.

* Most things meaning you aren't tech/computer savvy and have zero desire on managing your own system. It's incredibly horrible for the IT professional who has managed their own systems for the last 20 years.

@elusiveshame in my opinion, what you just posted in post #179 in this thread, was a very excellent and insightful post.

I've no desire to manage my system nor am i computer savvy.

I do however get outraged when Windows 10 sneaks in a night and moves stuff on me, changes interfaces, changes passwords, hides my files, renames folders,
butts in uninvited to anything i'm doing
spies on me and reports

in short takes over:
to borrow a phrase from history
Never Again !
