Cortana allows you to search for things like settings, files, and apps on your PC and search online using Bing. Cortana is a Virtual digital personal assistant tool that lets you search for anything either by typing or speaking. It’s just like Android’s “Google Now”. Only you say “Hey, Cortana“ . Most users will probably find value in Cortana’s capabilities, but one thing that many users won’t like is just how much space the Cortana search bar takes up in the Windows 10 taskbar. So, if you’d rather not use Cortana, hide the Cortana button in Windows 10.
Hide or Show Cortana Button on Taskbar in Windows 10
To hide the Cortana box, right-click on any empty part of the Taskbar
You can remove the Cortana Button from the Taskbar. To do this, right-clicking the Cortana icon or right click on any empty area of the Taskbar and select “Show Cortana Button ” from the popup menu.
Note: Note that hiding the search box doesn’t actually disable Cortana. This removes Cortana’s presence from the Windows 10 taskbar entirely, but Cortana will still run in the background for things like reminders and notifications.
