Interestingly this wizard guy could be programmed to say something -- but he also wasn't tied to the frame of the web browser. Anyhow, these have pretty much be useless gimmicks. I think Microsoft is trying to avoid being left behind. But they shouldn't resolve this by adding features to a desktop or laptop operating system -- especially when it just gets in the way of using the computer.

    I think the only reason that you can't disable it is because they know that people will just do that.
    actually you can disable Cortana. Again, in the cortana settings, there is a switch to turn it off.

    What if you never turn it on?
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    I think it is enabled by default. But you don't have to use it. You can just ignore it.

    if Cortana is turned off it just becomes the regular old Windows Search. (mine has never been enabled because my Language Settings is NZ English, and it can't do that).

    Oh. No one mentioned about disabling Cortana by simply using a foreign language like NZ.
