How do I limit Start menu searches to only my files?
When you search in the Windows 10 Start menu, it's actually picking up results from both your computer and Bing. While this can be handy, there are several upsides to disabling Bing in Windows 10's Start menu: you'll be able to wade through search results much easier (as they are restricted to items on your machine), and will reduce the work-load when you open the Start menu, if your computer is on the slow side.

Note: Proceeding through these steps will also disable Cortana, Microsoft's helpful AI assistant.
