  1. MS Edge: Search Engine defaults to Bing


    Hi,
    This morning, MS Edge defaults to Bing as the search engine even though the default setting is set to Google.

    I can't get it to default to Google, even though I am able to manually select Google as the search engine.

    How can I check if this is a problem with MS Edge or some other failure?

    Using Win 10 Home

    :)
