How to remove Cortana again

This seems to disable Cortana, for now. If you don't understand the implications of making changes like this, don't do it. You have been warned!

https://superuser.com/questions/9495...-on-windows-10

It's one post down, #152.

*Only works on Enterprise version.

Thank you thank you thank you!

For those of you who don't know anything but Windows, back in prehistoric times the operating system was called DOS. A batch file is a a file with .bat such as "This will get rid of a bunch of crap.bat". You can copy the above into Word and save it as a text file. Then rename the file with the .bat instead of .txt. Double click on the .bat file and let it do wonderful things to your system.

Great time saver, thank you!

If you use Skype, you may want to comment out the one line that removes it but otherwise it’s all good to me.

If you use Skype you can also download the Skype for Windows stand-alone application instead of using the less-feature-rich Windows 10 store one.
