Windows 10 - search bar box and the junk it contains

2021-02-18, 10:16 AM

I absolutely dislike Windows 10. Always wanting to shove in your face.



I've tried to find a setting that will help me out, but so far no luck. You can't right click and remove/uninstall like you can with all the unwanted apps that come preinstalled.

I know it's a minor inconvenience and I don't really have to see it if I simply hit the Windows key and start typing in the search bar, but if I'm navigating with the mouse and I click in the actual search bar.....well, that big stupid box that takes up nearly 1/5th of the monitor space and comes up. I can live with the big stupid, oversized box that takes up 1/5th of the monitor space, but I don't need a bunch of news/weather feeds showing off to me. Anyone know how to clean out this area of the news feed junk?

Hi sundev,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


My search bar window doesn't contain anything except my search results. Are you talking about the start menu window when you click the Windows Icon bottom right ? 

In that case, you can right click and uninstall/remove/Unpin most of those.


Here's also 10 ways to customize your start menu
