How to change the default search engine on Chromium Edge to Google

Google is the most popular search engine out there, and there is hardly any doubt about it. But Bing has also earned a lot of popularity in recent years, and you might already know, it is owned and operated by Microsoft. So, if you are using Microsoft Edge or any other browser, Bing will be the default search engine, and that shouldn’t be a big surprise for you. But if you don’t want to make the switch from Google to Bing, you can switch to Google as the default search engine on Microsoft Edge or any other browser, as it is all up to you, which search engine you want to use.

Recently, Microsoft switched to the open-source Chromium rendering engine and even there, the default search engine is set to Bing. However, if you want to stick to Google, on Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, you can do that without a hitch. You can see this tutorial to find out, how you can change the default search engine from Bing to Google on the old version of Microsoft Edge that isn’t based on Chromium. Besides Google, you can also change the search engine to DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, if one of them is your search engine of choice. If you don’t have Microsoft Edge based on Chromium, you can get that here.

Now, you can exit the browser or start surfing, and each time you surf from the address bar, the search will be made using Google.

However, one thing that you should note is that, if you open a new tab, and use the search bar available there, you have to search using Bing. I didn’t find any way yet, which can help you search using Google from the search bar on a new tab. We all use the address bar for pretty much everything these days, from searching the web to entering the website URL, and thus, this tutorial is not going to disappoint you in any way.

So, that was all about, how you can change the search engine from Bing to Google on Microsoft Edge. Do you have anything to say? Feel free to comment on the same below.
