I’m trying to disable web search from the windows 10 start bar as I only use it to search for documents and the Bing results are getting annoying. However I can’t work out how to do it. I’ve found several tutorials online but all the settings seem to have changed. I’m guessing Microsoft have monkeyed about with it but if anyone can tell me how to disable it I would greatly appreciate it.
Many thanks, Ben :)

if you have windows 10 home press windows key and r then type regedit and go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search.
If you don’t see a “Windows Search” key (folder) below the Windows folder, right-click the Windows folder and select New > Key. Name it “Windows Search”
Right-click the “Windows Search” key (folder) in the left pane and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Name the value “AllowCortana”. Double-click it and set the value to “0”.
all inside "just type whats inside don't include "

hope that helps
You can now close the registry editor. You’ll have to sign out and sign back in or restart your computer before the change takes effect.
