  1. Edge automatically launches Bing page on startup


    I did something to my computer and now every time I wake it up from sleep it automatically launches a Bing page on Edge that appears to be set to a search for the screen image that was on the startup page. It never did this before so I must have inadvertently changed something. It is very annoying. Is there anyway to stop that? Thanks!

    :)

    Remove Bing and the Cluttered Launch Page in Microsoft Edge

    Thank you BulldogXX

    My version is evidently diabolical. When I go to

    Microsoft Edge > Settings menu (3 horizontal dots) > Settings > View advanced settings > Change search engine > Google

    The ONLY option available is Bing. (I would have attached a screen print, but it exceeded the length of messages. The heading said 'Choose one' and there was only Bing listed with no visible way to input a choice)

    But your second instruction for changing the launch page may have solved the problem. I entered 'www.google.com' as the launch and it seems like a promising result. I tried a couple of searches and there was no sign of Bing or the cluttered launch page.

    Thanks again!

    Remove Bing and the Cluttered Launch Page in Microsoft Edge

    I have Microsoft Edge for Windows 10. The default search is Bing and I prefer Google. I can't find a way to change it.

    I also don't want to see all the garbage on the start page. Can I get it to launch with just the search bar and my most visited pages?
