  1. Disable Websearch in Windows Search field


    Hello.

    Am I correct that Microsoft does not give users an easy toggle to disable searching the web in the desktop search bar?

    I find it very annoying to see websearches when I use the search bar and would like to turn it off. Thanks!

    :)

    Hi Larry,

    You can always search for your files with the use of Cortana search box.

    If its not visible on your desktop, refer to the steps below to make it available again.

    1. Right-click on your taskbar and choose Cortana.

    2. Select Show search box.

    If you are referring to a search box that's designed to look for Word files only, we suggest you submit this as your entry at
