    How to disable search suggestions?


    Hi All,

    I'm still new to windows 8.1, so I hope you'll bear with me...

    Whenever I use the seach box (I mean the one in explorer, upper right hand) I get suggestions of what to search, basicly it's just the history of my previous searches. I guess I must be allergic because I always get itchy when it gets to logging and recording history by windows (or google, or yahoo, or iOS, or Android, or whatever)

    In windows 7 there's a registry hack that disables the recording of the searches and so it disables the search suggestions. When I google I only find articles that explain how to disable bing searches; needless to say I did that already.

    Is there a way to disable the recording of the search history; or a way to at least disable the search suggestions?
