Yes, you can turn Cortana off in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update

 I questioned the headlines in several tech pubs about this issue. Yes, MS is making the settings more and more obscure. But no, you don't have to put up with Windows 10 always "getting to know you" (cue music from The King And I). 

 Just as with Bing's nosiness, Cortana's coziness is no longer just one click away from being banished from your PC. 

 I liked the article which showed how to reduce Cortana to near-nothingness, then substitute the free desktop search utility Everything. I'm thinking of doing just that with my NUC when I nail down other (hardware and peripherals) details.
