    I made that registry change a while back and it really does work.

    This won't be helpful at all, but when I broke my leg a year ago (or was it two?) my nephew let me borrow his laptop - Windows 10. Didn't care for it but was glad to have something Internet - wise.
    I made quite a few changes to his computer, (malware scan, updating antivirus, etc) including turning off the annoying Cortana, but not by a registry change, so that he could re-enable it if that was his preference.
    So I guess this post has no real point to be made at all ... but the boy hasn't complained about any change I made.

    BUT since I will have to migrate to Win 10 (or the next) at some point, things like this are good to be aware of, so thanks!
