    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family.

    From the description, I understand that you are still receiving the pop up notifications, despite having disabled the search functionality in windows 10.

    Steps to disable the Search Bar

    • Right click on the task bar.
    • Select the "Search" option.
    • Select "Disable."
    However, if the above steps don't work out, perform the below suggested steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Open a CMD window started as Administrator.

    Repair corruption: Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    Run this command next: Sfc /scannow

    Now run these two commands:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Hope the above information was helpful.

    Thank You.

    How to clear the search record at the search bar on Windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I apologize for the inconvenience happened. We are glad to help you.

    Please share this:


    • Which search bar are you referring to?

    • Is it the search bar in file explorer or the search bar on desktop (cortana and search)?
    If you are referring to the search bar in file explorer, I suggest you to follow the steps given below and check if it helps:
    (to delete a specific entry)


    • Open File Explorer.

    • Click/tap inside the Search box, then select (highlight) the search suggestion (ex:
      ttt) that you want to delete, and press the Delete key.

    • You will not notice that it has been deleted.

    • Repeat if you would like to delete another one.

    To clear all search entries, follow this:


    • Click/tap on the Download button below to download the .bat file below, then
      run it.

      Clear_Search_History_in_File_Explorer.bat

    2. If prompted, click/tap on Run.

    NOTE: If you like, you can stop getting the Run prompt by
    unblocking

    the downloaded .bat file
    .

    3. You will now notice a command prompt quickly open and close while applying the changes to your registry.

    Hope this information helps. Feel free to get back to us for further queries. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thanks and regards,

    Jenith
