    2. In the search box at the bottom, type Disable Cortana.
    3. Once the suggestions appear in the list, click Cortana & Search settings.
    4. From the right section of the Settings pane, move the top button to ‘Off’ to disable Cortana from Windows 10.

    Cortana's bug

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Cortana might have been hidden, you can enable Cortana by following the below mentioned steps:

    1. Right click on the taskbar and click on Cortana.
    2. Select the option Show search box or Show Cortana icon.

    However, you can follow the troubleshooting steps from
    Troubleshoot problems with the Start menu or Cortana
    .

    NOTE: The last step in the article mentioned is to Reset the PC. Resetting the PC will remove the data and programs/applications installed on the computer. We suggest you to take a data backup if you want to reset the PC.

    If the above steps didn’t help you fix the problem, reply to the following questions:

    • Since when are you facing this issue?
    • Have you made any changes to the computer recently?

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking Yes or No.
