How to Hide Cortana From the Taskbar in Windows 10

By | May 26, 2018

Windows 10 comes equipped with the Cortana AI.
Cortana along with other competitors like Alexa and Siri, are a day to day AI technology that keeps improving over time to make your experience better.
You can take notes, set appointments, launch software and a bunch more with your voice (or by typing).
As long as your computer has a microphone you can fully use cortana without basic limitations.
Although Cortana can be very useful some people don’t want to use it.
It can be because of the recent spying schandals wich makes people value their privacy more
and don’t want to have businesses sell your information for money, wich can be in bad hands and may have negative consequences.
Or you just don’t like talking to a computer, as it (yet) has no feelings and can’t really answer good personal questions.
