    Here's how you stop web results from showing up on every search you do on Windows 10 while improving local results for files, apps, and settings.
    When you are on the look for a document you have been working on, trying to launch an app, or looking for a particular PC setting, you can quickly click the new search box in the taskbar to start a search. However, as soon as you start typing, Cortana pops up, and you'll start getting different grouped results, including (sometimes unnecessary) web data
    While certain web results can be helpful, they are not always necessary, because we tend to use search in Windows to find local documents, settings, and apps, and we leave the online searches as a task for the web browser. Also, these web results powered by Bing seem to get more priority, pushing your local stuff to the bottom of the list, which makes the experience a little inconsistent.

    In this Windows 10 guide, we'll show you the easy steps to prevent the operating system from serving web results when you do a search on your computer.
