    Depends on the version, check to see if you can disable via gpedit.msc first.

    I thought that running Cortana would drive me nuts but it doesn’t bother me but then again I only use the “Ask me anything” bar to search my own PC.  I tried to linking my Android to my PC to get notifications on the desktop but I still haven’t seen any.

    You’re suppose to download Cortana to your droid and in the settings allow to sync with your desktop.

    But, I still haven’t seen any..lol
