When I put my mouse over the search icon in the taskbar I get suggestion, often ones that really have no relevance at all, this is what I'm talking about. I understand the lack of relevance may be down to my settings, but i would like to be able to get rid of them alltogether.

Does anyone know how to disable the suggestions, I had an older solution that does not work anymore, can anyone help ?

I found out how if anyone has the same problem (Thanks to a Brink tutorial) that I found using a Google search.

Settings > Personalisation > Taskbar > Taskbar behaviours

Untick > show recent searches when I hover over the search icon

Now if we can just get searching from the Start Menu to point to Google and not Bing. I used to have Edge Deflector but it is no longer functioning. I also have ChrontanaPro but that doesn't change the search provider map for the Start Menu. If I use that the result cone up using Bing/Edge.
