Starting with Windows 10’s May 2020 Update, there’s a new registry setting that controls this option. You must edit the Windows registry to disable web searches in the Start menu.
Here’s our standard warning: The Registry Editor is a powerful tool and making the wrong change can make your system unstable or even inoperable. This is a straightforward change and, if you follow the instructions, you should be fine. But if you’ve never used it before, consider reading about how to use the Registry Editor. We always recommend backing up your Registry (and your computer) before making changes.
To start, open the Registry Editor by clicking Start and typing “regedit”. Double-click the “Registry Editor” shortcut that appears (or press Enter) and click “Yes” to the UAC prompt.

"Bing" is a default search tool in Microsoft Edge. You can instead make another one be the default search tool. Google or Duckduckgo are possibilities.
You can use Chrome or Firefox instead of Edge as a browser. Then "Bing" might not pop up.
You can avoid using Windows and instead use Linux. Or you could go the Apple route and get a MacBook and run MacOS, use Safari or Chrome or Duckduckgo. No chance of "Bing" popping up there.
