  1. For those with Home editions of Win 10, you have to install the Group Edit with a gpedit-enabler.bat. It is at many sites, but I used this without trouble: https://www.itechtics.com/easily-enable-group-policy-editor-gpedit-msc-in-windows-10-home-edition/ I successfully disabled the cortana component as outlined in this video, re-logged in. Still there. Restarted laptop, still there. I bring up the group edit and it shows as disabled. What is the problem?? I had gotten rid of cortana a couple years back, then with this latest microsoft update this week, it was Baaaaaccckkkk. If I find out why this video doesn't work now, I will update this comment.

  2. when we right click at bottom of screen.. and even just hover on cortano or rt click .. show search box not there!!!why doesnt anyone have a real video to help us get this show search box option back!!!!!! beyond frustration you!!
