I don't want your graphics on my screen, MicroSoft

All of a sudden MicroSoft has seen to put this ocean/island/nemo graphic in/adjacent to my “type here to search” bar:


I don’t want it. It’s distracting. When I hover over it, it brings up their stupid news suggestions. (I don’t give a shit about johnathan depp nor your stupid quiz about european parks.)

Make it go away.

I just make the whole bar go away. That solves the problem.

WOW - thanks for sharing that fix!


I just realized I can remove the Cortana button now, wow.

I never tried after the initial release when it was impossible (at least on my home version of W10).

Your thing looked so much worse though.
