    This will work for Windows 10 Home and Pro.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search]
    "AllowCortana"=dword:00000000
    "AllowSearchToUseLocation"=dword:00000000
    "ConnectedSearchUseWeb"=dword:00000000
    Reboot after applying the .reg file.

    lol guys, you can just disable Cortana just changing the Cortana's language to none.

    MDL is seeing far too much of this recently. The 14393 thread as example, it's blatantly obvious that quite a few just bang a post in at end of the thread without having looked at anything, or searched the thread. Same things are asked over and over.

    Let's be honest, MDL has needed a major overhaul on a lot of things for quite some time. Design, categories, topics, rules and moderation.
    The active moderators we have are awesome, but a LOT of stuff slips through. The Chatbox also needs some form of moderation, as it seems to ignore any and all rules of MDL quite often.

    Oh oh, watch out, a Mountie has entered the fray...:eek:

    I think things are overall OK. Just need a rule which says people with less than a 100 post are not allowed to post anything :D:p:D:p
