Re: latest windows 10, jaws 2020, and disabling cortana
Give 1 of the notes below at try:
From: Jim Flusche
Press, Win Key + X, to open the Power Menu and select PowerShell (Admin).
When the blue screen comes into view, copy/paste the below command and hit Enter
Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.549981C3F5F10 | Remove-AppxPackage
Wait for a few seconds while the PowerShell removes Cortana from your PC.
From: Miriam Vieni
If you can't see the screen, how do you know when the blue screen comes into view?
From: Jim Flusche
When the screen comes up, just paste the string command and wait a few minutes for Cortana to be removed, press ALT+f4to close, you are done.
From: Mike B
It can also be disabled in the group policy editor.
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.
You dont need to use powershell
You can now remove cortana like any other app
From: Larry Gassman
I don’t remember seeing Cortana in Add/Remove programs.
How did you remove this app without a power shell?
From: Chris via groups.io
Under settings > apps >apps and features
It appears in the list of programs there
Or in start menu right click on the cortana entry under the all apps list and select uninstall
This is in 2004
Stay safe and take care. Mike.

How can I disable cortana?
It's annoying, I could be typing an email, reading an article on the web
etc. Out of nowhere, it will say cortana, edit, and I land in an edit box
out of nowhere.
I've put up with it for 3 weeks now, but now it's annoying!
