What Is And How to disable SearchUI.exe in Windows 10?


Hi guys. So if you are tired of the SearchUI.exe process, then it’s time to get rid of it. How to stop the SearchUI.exe service? Here, unfortunately, is a junkie! So I looked in the services, and there is no service anywhere that runs under the SearchUI.exe process. That is, I mean that the SearchUI.exe process does not come from the service and it just won’t work to stop it.

We’ll show you just an amazingly delicious recipe for disabling the SearchUI.exe process!

But why is this process necessary? 


SearchUI.exe is unclear why you need it, well, that is, I can’t say exactly what it does. However, we know that it is connected with the work of voice helper Cortana (the game is still that) and it also seems to be like a graphical search engine. Still, this process quietly climbs to the Internet, because the search in Windows 10 (well, the one on the taskbar), then it is performed not only on the computer but also on the Internet. And for this, of course, you need the Internet, these are the pies.

You can disable SearchUI.exe, we did it, and then no glitches occurred to me, no jambs, everything was normal. Therefore, you can also try to cut him down, especially considering that the method we propose is completely safe and cool.

By the way, we just found out, in general, after disabling the SearchUI.exe process, the search on the taskbar will not work for you, keep this in mind! Normal search will work, we checked!

Note to you that the SearchUI.exe process starts here from this folder:


But you may have another folder, for you see, there is something incomprehensible in the end, maybe it is somehow connected with some version.

So look. First, you need to install the Unlocker utility in Windows 10, let me tell you right away that the utility is simple and not buggy, the system does not load and is harmless! The utility is able to delete everything that doesn’t want to be deleted. But besides this, she also knows how to rename! So we will need to rename the file SearchUI.exe to preserve the original name. How to do it all now and we will show

You install the Unlocker utility. First, we don’t think there’s a problem with it Then, if possible, we will even say what we advise, make a checkpoint recovery

Guys, we will remind you once again that this search will NOT work for you after disabling SearchUI.exe (but on the other hand, you can always quickly turn it back on):

Therefore, we first disable this search altogether, so that it does not loom to us. To do this, right-click on the taskbar, and there we select in the menu Search> Hidden:

Well, now the very recipe for getting rid of the SearchUI.exe process. Open the task manager (right-click on the taskbar):

In the manager, go to the Details tab and look for the SearchUI.exe process there, as we found, then right-click on it and select Open file location:

A folder with the highlighted SearchUI.exe file opens, right-click on it and select the Unlocker option:

Now you need to select where it says No action, well, select Rename in that menu:

After that, a small window will appear where you will need to enter a new process name. We advise you to enter this:


Thus, we will keep the original name and change it at the same time, well, we hope that you understand

In general, click OK, and then click OK again:

And then there will be a message:

And this means that everything went smoothly and everything was renamed normally, with which I congratulate you! As a result, your file will change its name to this:

Now, to say so to fix the effect and to check that everything turned off normally, we advise you to do a reboot. I’ll do it now too … In general, we rebooted, and everything was clear, we opened the folder again, where we should have renamed SearchUI.exe, we looked, and it was in the original place, so the file is not restored!

However, there is such a thing that when you rename a file, then a new file with the original name is copied from somewhere. Iwehad it, but it was a long time ago, and we don’t even remember what Windows was on. But it was forever. So, there seem to be no such jokes, we renamed the SearchUI.exe file, and that’s all, we did not notice the new file anymore. But maybe this is temporary .. we hope there is no. Well, we checked, sorted the files in the folder by name, we did not find the original SearchUI.exe file there, so everything is good!

That is, the recipe for disabling SearchUI.exe works fine

But if anything, you can repeat the recipe, as you can see, it’s not at all difficult!

But there is a slightly different way, a bit more complicated, and we don’t even know if he will be there. In general, it is to stir up with the rights. We will not write here how to do this, because we have already shown this in the example of disabling utorrentie.exe, so if you’re interested, you can take a look
