How to turn off Bing in the Windows 10 Start Menu?

I don’t want Microsoft/Bing to know whenever I search for a folder, file or application on my PC, so I’d like to turn off Bing integration in the Windows Start Menu search bar. How can I do this?
It's a shame that you have to lose Cortana to get rid of Bing integration. I understand why, but you have to give up one of the more interesting new features of Windows 10 to gain a little privacy.
In order to disable Bing search you’ll also need to disable Cortana.
Go into “Cortana & Search settings” (you can use windows search to get there or go through settings.) Turn the Cortana switch to Off.
Turn the “Search online and include web results” off which is responsible for the Bing Settings.
