[Windows 10] Registry that disables Cortana

Tips / Knowledge

Hello!This time, I will introduce the registry value for disabling "Cortana" which is one of the functions of Windows 10.

Cortana itself is a useful function if you can use it well, such as referring to weather forecasts and online help via the Internet, as well as Windows functions and file search.However, there may be scenes where you want to disable it because the machine power is low on a cheap PC or because you are not connected to the Internet in the first place.

At that time, you can modify the registry to disable "Cortana".

Registry values ​​and their meanings

Registry key and value

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Windows Search
Subkey: AllowCortana
Registry value: REG_DWORD 0

Registry valueIt works as follows.
0: Cortana disabled
1: Cortana enabled

It can be disabled by rewriting the above registry directly with the registry editor.
* After setting, restart and check the operation.
Since the registry is edited this time as well, it can also be realized by executing the following command at a command prompt with administrator privileges.

Command to change and disable registry value

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Windows Search" / v AllowCortana / t REG_DWORD / d 0 /f
