    how to stop web results showing in search

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query here in Microsoft Community.

    Here's how you stop web results from showing up on every search you do on Windows 10 while improving local results for files, apps, and settings:

    • Click to open the search box in the taskbar.
    • Click the Notebook icon.
    • Click Settings from the list of options.
    Note: On Windows 10 build 14316 and later versions the Settings button to access Cortana setting may appear outside of Notebook in the navigation pane on the left.

    4. On the Settings page, turn off the Cortana can give me suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts and more option.

    5. After disabling Cortana, turn off the Search online and include web results option.

    You will now notice that the search box in the taskbar no longer says "Ask me anything," instead, it reads "Search Windows," indicating that you have completed the task. Try to do a search one more time, and this time, you'll see that search results will
    no longer appear.

    In the case you need a more advanced search experience, type your search query, and click the
    Search my stuff button. In the advanced search section, you can sort results by relevance or time, and you can limit the result to a particular category (e.g., Documents, Settings, apps, etc.).

    Keep in mind that stopping web results from showing up in the taskbar search box will also turn off Cortana in your system, which means that you'll have to make the decision of which experience is more important to you.

    Let us know if it helps.

    Regards.
