Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Do a Windows search without Cortana - that's how it works

Question: Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Do a Windows search without Cortana - that's how it works

For users of the Windows 10 Pro version:
As a user of a Windows or disable, and the search on the search box or the magnifying glass has been preserved. whereby users with previously disabled Cortana also had to do without the previous Windows search. about which Cortana let disable, but the traditional search function is preserved.

Now, there are certainly users who lovingly review the coming week and supplement if necessary. Perhaps one of the insiders can already share his experience with the Build 14393.5, that the Windows search works again largely without them. Currently it is so with the TH2 that turn off Cortana on the settings

Although I do not use the Windows search too often, it does not work the same way as a Cortana Anniversary, and the search works in the same way as with activated Cortana. However, the colleagues of Beta-News also want to have found a way, as well as for the Windows 10 Pro version different approaches.

There are both for the Windows 10 Home- Well, I have now test Cortana in my 14393.5-the already no one person, so I treat it factually and not female. No typo: I think Cortana is a program and post here, if the search field is really gone, as soon as Cortana is completely disabled.

We will definitely want to do without this process in Cortana or may even have to. However, one should compress the functions of Cortana so far 10 Professional version is enough a change in the Group Policy Editor, where it proceeds as follows. So for example, the Windows search should be completely taken over by the language assistant Cortana, I would like to do without having to immediately lose the entire search box.
