    I am wondering why you want to change it using the registry?
    You may manage it using the Personalization settings or Group Policy.
    However, in case you want to change the registry , it is the following:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CloudContent

    You may add DWORD called DisableWindowsSpotlightFeatures and when set it to 1, it will be disabled.
