You Can't Turn Off Cortana In The Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Like many of you, the very first thing I did when I upgraded to Windows 10 was turn off Cortana. Apparently, that's not an option with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The good news, if you can call it that, is you can at least set limits on Cortana. Thanks to OEM for the heads up.

Microsoft made an interesting decision with Windows 10’s Anniversary Update, which is now in its final stages of development before it rolls out on August 2. Cortana, the personal digital assistant that replaced Windows 10’s search function and taps into Bing’s servers to answer your queries with contextual awareness, no longer has an off switch.
