I am trying to disable Windows 10 start menu search web results on Windows 10 professional v2004 slow ring preview release build 19033.1.
Here is a list of things that do not work for me:
[DISABLE WINDOWS WEB SEARCH ON REGISTRY EDITOR]
I've googled how to get rid of windows 10 search web results and tried the suggested registry editor hacks on:|
0but they are not working.
- I've even tried to rewrite all bing.com endpoints in windows (WTF most of them are HTTP, not HTTPS! Anyone can sniff those searchs on an unsecured WiFi network!) but they are restored on windows restart.
[REMOVE EDGE AS DEFAULT APP]
- I've tried to restrict edge in every way I could and removing it from default apps but the bastard keeps popping up every time I make a typo while trying to search/run something on my local system.
[RESTRICT CORTANA AND EDGE USING FIREWALL RULES]
- I've disabled windows firewall rules allowing outbound and inbound connections for Edge and Cortana. Still no effect.
Are there any other more current hacks that would work on this release?
