As you already know, a lot of services are integrated by default and natively in Microsoft’s Windows 10 and it has been since 2015. And among the functionalities merged in this system, we can mention the intelligent and personal assistant of Microsoft, Cortana and the firm’s search engine, Bing Search.
This kind of integration can slow down system usage instead of speeding it up as more resources are used to run these tools, resources like PC RAM access, network and internet connection.

So among the big changes in Windows 10 2004 was the disintegration of this smart assistant.
