  1. How to remove web results from Start Menu search?


    Hello,


    I would like to remove web search results from Start Menu search as it clutters results window and it takes significant amount of time to read through menu to see whether it is displaying what I need. In some other cases I press ENTER without checking and it forcibly opens Edge browser completely ruining my flow. This is a horrible user experience. Where can I disable web search?

    :)

  3. Web search result on Start menu.

    Hi Franklin,

    There may be some corrupted files that are possibly causing your Cortana
    not to display web results when searching. To isolate such issue and provide effective troubleshooting steps, we'd like to ask a few questions:

    • Were there any changes made on your computer settings prior to this issue?
    • Were there any updates installed on your computer recently?
    • Does this happen on other user profiles?

    We look forward to your response.

    Hello

    Since the steps above did not work for you, we suggest that you disable web search by navigating the settings of Cortana itself. Please follow the steps below:

    • Open the search box in the taskbar.
    • Click the Notebook icon.
    • Click Settings from the list.
    • On the Settings page, turn off the Cortana can give me suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts and more option.
    • Turn off the Search online and include web results. See screenshot below:
