    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:

    Cortana Notebook

    In order to enable the Notebook icon in Cortana, I suggest you to check if you have enabled Cortana.

    To enable Cortana, please follow the steps below:

    • Go to Cortana.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Turn on “Cortana can give you suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts”.

    Hope this helps.
