  1. Make Google Default Search in IE??


    I've been trying to figure out how to add google search to IE and make it my default search engine. When I go to the add on gallery here:

    http://www.iegallery.com/en-us/addon...&featuretype=2

    and click google, then add to IE, nothing happens.

    I just found this online:
    http://techdows.com/2015/05/fix-cant...plorer-11.html

    Is it true that Microsoft blocked this in a windows update? I hate to go in and remove an update without knowing for sure it will help. To me this seems just too ridiculous all around. Can anyone confirm?

    :)

  3. How do I make Google my default search provider in Windows 10?

    Hi Wayne,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you would like Google as search engine for Cortana. However, the default search engine for Cortana currently is Bing. If you would like to change it to google, you may check with Google support for any extension that be can be used with
    Google Chrome (after setting it as default browser) that can serve the purpose.

    Important: Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third
    Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.


    Hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to reply in case you face any other issues with Windows in future.

  4. Make Google Default Search in IE??

    Well.. I went ahead and tried that solution anyways, and it did not work. Dang..

    This is clearly something that is blocked in IE though, because if I hit the same link in Waterfox, it resolves just fine. Does not add the plugin, but at least it opens.

  5. Apparently, the only way I could figure out how to resolve this, was to install the google toolbar, which also installs google search. Yep. Tis True..

  7. I tried that, and mentioned in my first post. Unfortunately, it did not work for me. Had to load google toolbar to resolve.

  10. I am amazed that others are able to install it. I would love to select it from a list in add ons, but for me it was not an option. Google search is not listed cuz ie would not let me install it. Everything you describe in your post is exactly what I did, but when I click add to Internet explorer, nothing happens. The work around is to at least temporarily install Google toolbar.

  11. The issue is, non of that works until you uninstall KB3038314. If I go to manage add ons, search providers, find more, and try to add google nothing happens? It never gets added. Clicking Add to Internet explorer does nothing. Uninstall KB3038314 and it works like its supposed too. For me it does anyway. I had the same issue on my laptop and desktop, both running Windows 8.1 64 bit.

  13. Make Google Default Search in IE??

    I was wondering if it had a different KB number in Windows 10? It is listed as a Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1.

  15. Been there done that. I'm a member of 7, 8, and 10 forums. First thing in the morning when I fire up my e-mail I could be in any and all forums answering threads. Then get mixed up as to which one I'm in and the OS in question.
