How to Hide or Show Cortana Button in Taskbar

In the Windows 10 taskbar, the Cortana button is displayed by default.

If you wish, you can hide it. Let’s see how to do this.

Right-click on the blank taskbar space.

Hit the Show Cortana button. You can find this one between News and interests and Show People on the taskbar.

That’s it. To revert, follow the steps above.

Here’s an alternate method:

Launch Registry Editor.

Before continuing, I recommend making a backup of the Registry.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Explorer > Advanced.

Double-click on the ShowCortanaButton in the right pane.

Enter 0 (to hide) or 1 (to show) in the Value data field.

Hit the OK button.

Restart the File Explorer.

That’s all.
