    Cortana / Search Box

    The search box keeps popping open at random. I turned off Cortana but the search box keeps coming on. This is very annoying. If I want to do a search I'll open it myself. How can I stop the Cortana / Search box from popping itself on?

    Hi Nimit,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    This issue might occur, when some of the system files got corrupted.

    I would suggest you to try perform System File Checker (sfc) scan and check if it helps.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    To perform SFC Scan, refer to the below link:

    Note: Steps mentioned for Windows 8/8.1, will work fine with Windows 10.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
