Default Windows 10 Timeline can it be suspended?

While clicking on the Run box and Cortana Shows I saw it was reporting links to news events galore (Not my doing!) and Back tracking this led to the Windows Timeline History log which is recording Happily anything typed into the run box or Edge search engine style. Am OK if its Windows 10 related but trivia videos that's a NO

The other Clue route indicated on all the Items is via Edge>Bing Video Which I Never use. Any chance of disabling that?
So I ask A) How do I stop it recording and B) can the Trivial items be excluded from the History (or that History be Purged?)

I suppose the easiest way would be to disable Cortana and don't use Edge and set another browser as your default.

This article has methods for disabling Cortana but you will see some useful tutorial links at the bottom of it which I think will do what you are looking for.

Another solution (easier) and this worked best

In the Run box type Keyword: "Activity'
then Select the "Activity History Privacy Settings" Item NOT Activation OK?

All I did was unselect all Items Viz 2 tick boxes plus the Show activity from Accounts section which in my case is Linked to Yahoo>Switched to OFF, then at the foot of the Menu, press the clear activity History button which links to that account

Now I'm seeing nothing reflected from Yahoo .Who thought of this? Is actually grabbing a lot of Archived posts from and some New email from Yahoo which given Time would swamp the Cortana link for many. FYI Yahoo has a 1TB capacity mailbox
