    Is there a way to disable the top apps from the Windows 10 search box?


    It isn't even accurate, it leaves apps up there I've used once. I'm not trying to be negative, but I believe there is no way to disable it. I've tried through the registry and using Powershell scripts. Nothing works, and it ruins the privacy on our public computers at our site. Someone used games on one of the PCs without permission. Now those game shortcuts are stuck in the Top Apps section. So the kids are always looking for the games that aren't there. The software we put on the PCs to monitor student activities is now trapped in the Top Apps section of all of our computers. It's a nightmare, to the point we have to wipe the computers and start fresh, when certain programs get stuck on the Top Apps section.
