  1. How to remove bing from file explorer


    This must be from a very recent update to Windows 10. In file explorer, the Locations field dropdown now contains "Quick Access" with the bing logo. If I type something, then it opens bing.com.


    How do I permanently remove any reference to or connection with bing?

    :)

    Remove Bing

    Hi,



    Thanks for posting your query to Microsoft forum. I will certainly help you with this.

    Do you want to remove BING from default search, from Internet explorer or Windows search?

    To remove Bing from Internet explorer follow the steps:

    • Click the gear icon to open the Tools menu.

    • Select "Manage Add-ons" from the Tools menu to display your add-ons by type.

    • Select "Search Providers" under the add-on type. If Bing is the only search provider listed, you'll have to add another one before you remove Bing. To do this, click "Find more search providers." Click your desired search provider and click "Add to Internet
      Explorer." Select "Make this my default search provider." Restart Internet Explorer and return to the Manage Add-ons menu.

    • Select "Bing" and click "Remove."
    Steps for removing Bing search bar:

    • For users who have a touch screen device on Windows 8 or Windows 10 you will need to swipe from the right side of the screen to the center to open the charms bar.

      Note: For users who have a PC or laptop you need to press and hold the button “Windows” and the button “C” on the keyboard.
    • Left click or tap on the “Settings” icon presented in the “Charms” bar.
    • Left click or tap on the “Change PC settings” feature presented in the “Settings” window.
    • Now in the “Change PC settings” menu you will have to search for “Search & apps” and left click or tap on it.
    • You will have to find in the “Search and apps” menu the “Get search suggestions and web results from Bing” feature and toggle the switch to disable it.

      Note: Set the switch to “Off” state.
    • Reboot the Windows 8 or the Windows 10 device and your Bing search bar should be disabled.
    Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to help you further.

  3. Removal of Bing from Internet Explorer

    Hi Joycelyn,

    It is possible that the Bing search engine is set as default that is why you can't remove it. We suggest that you add another search engine and set it as default, then try to remove the Bing. See steps below:

    • Open Internet Explorer and in the top right corner of the search box, click the down arrow.

    • Click on Add and select the your preferred search engine.
    • On the upper right corner, click on Settings.

    • Right-click on your preferred search engine and click on Set as Default.
    • You can now right click on Bing and click on Remove.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
