    We'll see. I bet Chrome is here longer than Cortana is.

  4. Microsoft's CEO Says Cortana's Going to Kill the Browser

    Cortana is possessed, how to make it go away?

    Almost any mouse gesture makes Cortana send out a tone, then either maximize to take up 1/4 of my screen on the left side, or the smaller 1/8 Cortana presence. Cortana responds to the louder commercials on the television, and went off to connect me to the
    Duluth Trading Company! It isn't even that loud, but the speakers are good. I don't see how Cortana can be considered helpful when I constantly have to X it down (but never off. Even killing it through task manager only lasts a few seconds), in order to
    see my screen. Even when I use Cortana to look something up, there's no difference between typing my query in a browser and typing it in Cortana, except that I can set the browser to filter if need be. If anything, using Cortana is adding an extra step to
    search (it doesn't respond accurately to verbal requests to search), and who needs that? I already have to deal with Cortana distracting me when I use the touch pad. This is an ADHD nightmare, adding a constant distraction to the already prone to being distracted.
    I spent an hour trying to kill Cortana today, walked away in frustration from something important yesterday because Cortana was just too annoying. Is there anyway to turn Cortana off? I figured I should ask before I go into into Program Files and start deleting.
    If it isn't necessary for the functioning of the computer it should be made optional.

    So, is there any way to turn off/disable/kill Cortana?

    #2 I really hope you're right!! Here in Denmark we don't have Cortana at all!! And missing a browser these days without a substitution is quite difficult *Smile

    No way Cortana is Microsoft baby like Edge is, both work together well.

    Both Edge and Cortana are interesting toys at this point but neither can really get the job done. Maybe in a few years they might start getting useful, until then I'll continue to use FireFox.

    Not really interesting but some are pretty funny.
