    How to change search engine back to Google in Address toolbar


    I managed to change the search engine to Google in the new Win10 search located in the menu and also in Edge. However, the little address toolbar, that can be added to the taskbar by putting a checkmark in the address toolbar after right clicking on the taskbar and choosing toolbars has suddenly switched to Bing as the search engine. I would love to have this set at Google as it always was. I find this toolbar so much more convenient than the one that came with the new win10 menu. I have already turned off Cortana over there. I hope I have explained which tool bar I am referring to. Thanks for any help

    Could somebody PLEASE tell me how to make Google my default search engine, especially when searching from the address toolbar! It goes to Bing, (and I HATE Bing), and want Google as my default search engine. Running Windows 10, ver. 1511. HELP!

  3. turn off bing search for google

    You might have to right-click the Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Unlock the toolbars" then grab the vertical divider at the left end of the Google Toolbar and move it to make the Google Toolbar larger so that the wrench icon appears.

    I also should have posted earlier...

    Take Edge to
    www.google.com
    and follow the instructions at

    In IE go to Settings > manage add-ons > search providers. Down at the bottom left there should be an add more search providers option. Add google then set it as the default. Then remove Bing if you want.
