    How do I change default search engine used by Search box to Google


    Although I have Google set as the default browser, whenever I type a search in the Search box at the bottom left, the search result is displayed as a Bing result. This seems to have become more of an issue after today's Windows update (15 August 2021). Now running Windows 10 OS Build 19042.1165 I have set Google as the default bowser and it shows it as the default Search engine but it still seems to use BIng.

    :)

    How do I change default search engine used by Search box to Google

    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.
