    Cortana/Search on Windows 10 opens frequently without an apparent cause. I have turned all the Cortana settings to "off", hidden the search bar, and disabled the three-finger setting on my touchpad (I have an HP laptop). Still, the search opens at random. It appears to happen more frequently when scrolling down a page, but also sometimes happens while I'm just moving the mouse around the screen. I haven't noticed whether or not it happens when I'm not interacting with the touchpad or keyboard.

    This is extremely frustrating. Do you have any advice?

    I know the feeling. You have to turn off gestures on the control panel. Got to your windows 10 control panel click on Hardware and sound/Mouse/Dell touch pad/Click to change dell touch pad settings. After it brings up the next settings window turn off all gestures. This will solve your problem.
