Keep seeing Cortana in Windows 10 Task Manager

Some time back we had assistance from EE to disable the Cortana apps successfully.  However, we keep seeing the Cortana in Task Manager.  

In Task Manager when we right-click and 'Open FIle Location', we get folder  'Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy' not and apps (an.exe file)

How can we make it not appear in memory?

Besides EE help, we found a way to remove these Cortana apps from memory the file using Taskkill (but Cortana still appears):
- ActionUriServer.exe
- Cortana.exe
- Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy
- backgroundTaskHost.exe

Looking up these commands seem pertaining Cortana.

Please advice

With the newest builds of Windows 10, Cortana cannot be fully disabled and sits in Task Manager. No problem and nothing to worry about. Just do not use it if you do not wish to.

The article confirms what I said above. It is now built in and runs. But it does no harm and does not chew up any resources.

It is like this on all my Windows 10 Pro fully updated machines.

Yes, I second John, though OP query does not get resolved by this but too much changes to disable it, since it does not do harm in background, it can be kept this way.

So to clos the question, Cortana cannot be uninstalled completely from a computer?
No. The conclusion of the linked sites is about like this. That is microsoft. They establish cortana - people don't accept it. They try once more, still not accepted. Then they make it mandatory in some way.
