14. Muz­zle Cor­tana

Windows Advisor - - Feature -

But what if you don’t want Cor­tana lis­ten­ing in on you what­so­ever? Mi­crosoft un­for­tu­nately dis­abled all overt meth­ods for switch­ing off the dig­i­tal as­sis­tant in the Win­dows 10 An­niver­sary Up­date, along with a hand­ful of other things.

There’s still a work­around for clos­ing its eyes and ears though: log out of your Mi­crosoft Ac­count in Cor­tana. To do so, head to Notebook > About me > User ac­count > Sign out. This will se­verely limit func­tion­al­ity, though. Al­ter­na­tively, you can limit Cor­tana’s aware­ness and use a third-party lo­cal search tool.
