  1. Changing search engine to google, downloading chrome, on a new HP Pavillion


    Seems like the first issue should be easily solved by going into advanced settings, and replacing that horrible Bing with Google. But there is no "address bar" option in settings or advanced settings which should be the place where I can make the replacement. ...Also, when I try to download Chrome, Edge wants to force me into "s" mode or some such thing, and tells me that this is irreversible action. I am so aggravated. Maybe I'll try to download Firefox, but I suppose I'll get the same threatening message from Edge. The computer was the right price, and is brand new, so I certainly don't want to do anything "irreversible".

    Windows 10: Search Engine changed to Google but still searches with Yahoo: Firefox, Edge, Chrome

    I can change the default search engine to Google on Firefox/Chrome/Edge, but whenever I search something, it still searches with Yahoo despite the default being Google.

    My Process:

    Firefox:

    Step 1.

    Click on the Magnifying Glass in the Search Box: Go to Change Search Settings

    Default Search Engine: Select Google

    Google now shows as the default search engine. Even when I open the magnifying glass on the search box, Google is shown as the search engine being used- But when I actually search, it searches with Yahoo. The only way I can successfully use the search box
    to search with Google is to take it off default so that I can click the google symbol when I open magnifying glass (when I click the symbol while it's the default, it searches with Yahoo instead).

    Step 2.

    Go back to Change Search Settings

    Remove Yahoo from the One-Click Search Engines

    The problem persists anyway.

    Chrome:

    Click on the stack of lines on the right: Go to Settings

    Under Search: Click on Manage Search Engines...

    Hover over Google: Make Default

    Hover over Yahoo: Click on the X and remove it

    Click Done

    Search in the Omnibox and... It still uses Yahoo.

    Microsoft Edge:

    Click on the 3 Dots on the Right: Go to Settings

    Go to View Advanced Settings

    Find "Search in the address bar with" and click Change

    Open Google's Homepage so that it can discover it

    Click on the discovered Google and Select: Set as Default

    Click on Yahoo and Select: Remove

    (Bing, the only other search engine provided in the list, can't be removed even though it isn't the default search engine)

    Still searches with Yahoo.

    Please Help.
