  1. Getting rid of Cortana


    Could there be anything more annoying and distracting. I am looking at the settings to disable it and it seems I can't. Also, try to uninstall it. I have this computer which I got in 2018 and my plan was to use it for travel. However, it has trouble updating the Dell Bios and there is Cortana that is a distraction. My Samsung S20 Ultra is much easier to use doesn't have endless problems. Is here an easy way to get rid of Cortana. If not I might just trash this PC and get a Chrome book or something. It isn't my workstation and Dell didn't preinstall Chrome on it. My Samsung phone

    How to get rid of all the tips and cortana garbage on search toolbar?

    Hi, I don't have anything like that appearing as i've never configured more than the most basic Cortana settings.

    Try Notebook (icon left on Cortana), Lists - clear those.

    Likewise, check for any Reminders

    - you've shown the search field for Cortana at the bottom of your screenshots.

    (And remember there's one top right of file explorer too).


    Try this:

  3. How do I get rid of "Get Cortana on your phone" Card in cortana?

    Hi Edward,



    To turn off those cards which you are getting on Cortana you can follow these steps:



    • Open Cortana’s Notebook.
    • Click on Cortana tips.
    • If All tips suggestions is Off, turn it On.
    • Once it’s On, you will see Tip cards and Tip notifications options.
    • Make sure that both options are turned Off.


    Don’t hesitate to give us any updates regarding your concern.
