    Search Engines


    All my 'pc' life I have used Google but recently have been observing some disturbing trends with them; both political and privacy. Finally, I decided to try another and did a 'google' search for a good unbiased search engine with privacy (alleged). I am trialing duckduckgo on Vivaldi and so far it has come up with answers even quicker than Google. I do not trust Bing as its owned by Microsoft. Your views on search engines would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    search engine

    windows xp advice for a windows 10 query. with registry fiddling. great advice.

    anyway, the answer is very simple:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/change-the-default-search-engine-in-microsoft-edge

    "

    When you enter something in the address bar in Microsoft Edge, you’ll see results from Bing. Microsoft recommends Bing for the best performance with Windows 10. Bing gives instant help for Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge (just like this). And Bing links search
    results with some Windows 10 apps. But Microsoft Edge uses OpenSearch technology, so you can change the default search engine. Here’s how:


    • Enter the search engine’s website and browse to it.

    • Select More actions (...) > Settings and then scroll down to select View
      advanced settings. In the list under Search in the address bar with, choose Add new.

    • Select the website and then select Add as default.

      • Note: Only search providers that support the OpenSearch standard will appear in this list. If they don’t support it yet,here's how
        they can."
