I am at my wits end.
Could someone please help me disable web results in the windows 10 start menu?
(I am using windows 10 Pro version 2004, May update).
I have already googled it and tried the following things:
Removed cortana app via powershell.
Blocked search app, start and search UI via windows firewall.
Group policy, have the following options configured and ran gpupdate /force
Added suggested registry entries to disable bing search and cortana
This is what happens when I type in the search box as an example. See how it is still searching bing. How can I disable this?
Thank you in advance.
Edit: the closest I got was by disabling windows search via an outbound rule in firewall settings, but i’d like the option of web search removed altogether.
hmm … that’s weird. I’m not getting that web result, only a link that will open a browser and search there.
Just checked my setup list, and I have nothing special there to block web search. Never seen it on any of the other machines that I set up either.
Are you in the US by any chance? This might be a regional thing.
Follow this guide. It works like a charm!
With the Windows May 2020 update, there are things that need to be disabled like OneDrive, Cortana, Bing Search, etc. Here's how to do it.
Sorry but it’s none of these. I did some digging and found what it was.
Create dword 32 bit value
Set value to 1
Notice in the screenshot the web opttion at the top is gone now.
