Download Via WinAero Just download the Zip (Uninstall_Cortana_[winaero.com]_1802.zip) and Run the CMD (Uninstall Cortana.cmd) as Admin.

The zip contains 2 files:

install_wim_tweak.exe
Uninstall Cortana.cmd

 

It is free, install_wim_tweak.exe can also be gotten from Legolash2o's page linked below and you could create your own CMD if you are leary of running downloaded CMD's as Admin.............

Note: This breaks search function with regular search bar, BUT if you use a Start Replacement like I do, Star10, You will still have a working search function.

Read Article, apparently it is hard to reinstall!

"Behind this trick is an application called WIMTweak which manages Windows Packages and allows you to hide/unhide them from the Windows image (WIM) file. It works on offline images as well as online. WIMTweak was created by MSFN user Legolash2o, so credits for this awesome tool go to him." --WinAero

Legolash2o's page @ MSFN with more details on WIMTweak
