    Turn Off Web Search Results When Searching My Computer

    Hi,

    If you are pertaining to the Cortana search web results, you can disable it and improve local search results. Follow the steps below to disable web results:

    • Click the search bar.
    • Select the Notebook icon on the left pane of the search bar.
    • From the options, select Settings. (Note: On the later versions of Windows, the Settings button might be outside the Notebook icon.)
    • On the Settings, toggle the Cortana gives me suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts and more option to
      Off.
    • On the lower part, turn off the Search online and included web results option as well.

    See the image as reference to the above steps:

    After doing the steps, try using search again and see if the web results will now disappear.

    how to remove "search the web and windows'' from the task bar

    You're just failing to follow the steps properly. That's all.

    Be sure to right click on an empty area of your taskbar, click on Search in the context menu, and then click on Disabled like below.

    Web search gone from windows search bar!

    Unable to Type in Search the Web and Windows Bar


    Your suggestion unfortunately did not resolve the problem. I still cannot type anything in the "Search the web and Windows" box in the task bar. Additionally Cortana still will not run. When I hit the Windows Key and the S key, I can see Cortana start up from within the Task Manager but it immediately closes (exits).
