    Microsoft Family blocking google, youtube, facebook, yahoo for child accounts

    This is just Microsoft bashing Google by granting our kids no access to Google's Services and pushing their own. A shame, really. Too bad no MS rep steps into this list of questions either: the URL Microsoft Community is a joke...

    Apologies for rant...

    windows 10 anniversary update: bash missing

    I have windows 10 anniversary update installed.

    I went to turn windows features on/off and ticked on Windows Subsystem for Linux (beta).

    I went to settings/update&security and enable developer mode and turned that on.

    note in my event log saying these were done and system needs restart.

    reboot machine.

    enter bash on search and Cortana takes me to Windows store to install the game bish bash bus.

    search store for bash and the only thing close is Terminal RT for windows 8.1.

    search store for Linux and Ubuntu and still don't see anything.

    where is the windows 10 bash that is supposed to be automatically downloaded and installed?

    Has it been removed?

    thank you.

    cortana bashs google

    Thanks for the link. As much as I am a Cortana Fanboy, I still 100% believe in user choice. They could of just put an explanation with a "More" link in Cortana's set up, and gave the uses the information when making their choice, and not made it impossible.
    I wonder if this is ONLY for Cortana, or also for Windows Search(Cortana turned off).

    For now, only applies to Cortana search.
    Have a look at this article
    Windows 10 will no longer let you Google search from Cortana
    As the company explained in a blog post, "the only way we can confidently deliver this personalized, end-to-end search experience is through the integration of Cortana, Microsoft Edge and Bing." Google and other search engines will still be accessible through a conventional browser search.
