  2. "Search the web and Windows" is disabled with the current configuration on my laptop

    The current configuration that Windows 10 or I have inadvertently installed on my laptop has disabled "Search the web Windows." The only way I can search the web is through the google icon which has Microsoft Edge while Internet Explorer best serves my
    needs. Can someone please help me restore the "Search the web and Windows" function. Thanks in advance
