    Search with Bing in Notepad

    Anyone aware of some method like registry tweaking to hide this item from the context menu of Notepad?

  2. How to remove Bing search

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    a) What is the exact issue that you face with Bing?

    b) Is the issue related to Bing app?

    c) Do you get issues with bing search in Windows Edge?

    If you wish to set a different search for Windows Edge, here are the steps which might help you to set it as default search engine or home page.

    • Open Windows edge.
    • Click on More actions (Three dots ...)
    • Click on settings.
    • Click on view advanced settings.
    • Turn on "Show the home button"
    • Enter the URL of the website which you want to set as your home page.
    • Close the Windows edge and open it again you will be able to get you desired webpage as your home page.

    For Internet Explorer, refer to the following steps:

    a) Type Internet options into the start search box

    b) Press enter

    c) Go down to search and select settings,

    d) You can change it here.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

  3. Remove Bing search = Yicks


    The start menu suggestions are okay,
    It's when you use the enter key (which in win-7) selects the top suggestion
    In win-10 it spins you to a bing search page :/

    Forum sections can be easily confused it's all good but please keep in mind help is always the main objective Search with Bing in Notepad :)
    Otherwise I would've posted somewhere else less serious Search with Bing in Notepad :)

    Allot of people do not like Bing Desktop Search because of this very bazar default in results,
    Not that I would want to use another search engine "Google or....) either start search is in my opinion always a Local files/ programs search,
    Otherwise I would open a browser and search and then I wouldn't want to search for local files,

    The only trick ie workaround seems to not use the enter key and click on the suggestions instead :/
     
  4. Search with Bing in Notepad

    Bing search engine


    Can someone please help me? I have just registered on here, at the suggestion of someone from Firefox help forums. I am a senior person (still working) I have some pc knowledge, but not to technical especially with in depth stuff.

    My problem is I have FF as my default browser, with Google as my home page, everything was wine till about 72 hours ago. when i typed something into google results came up in google search, but now (and I have made no changes I dont dabble or touch settings because i do not understand them) all my search results are returned in bing instead of google, and I hate it.
    I have tried resetting to default in firefox, Ive have manually removed Bing, from the search engine list that FF uses, it shows on that page that google is default search engine, but everything still comes up in bing. I saw online that cortania can have bing as they are both microsoft, so I found out how to disable cortania and remove what is held on me in the cloud, but no change.

    Several suggestions from FF help forum have not stopped bing coming up, so the last thing that was suggested was as follows( I had to ask for simple to follow instructions)
    went off line, then in url bar typed about:config, accepted the liabilty, by hitting the button, then in aboutcnfig search area typed in Bing, three lines came up that had the word Bing, so I right clicked each one then left clicked modify then changed the word bing for google, I then came out of it (as I was told) went back to my home page typed in luggage and a couple of other things, but still it came up in bing, so I went back and did the same process again about:config typed in bing again only this time the three lines did not appear, just a blank white page!!,

    I then tried the next suggestion wich was looking at all the script down the left hand side of config was told to look in Browser search orders 1,2, 3, so this i did and what I saw was:
    Browser search order 1 default string Google
    -------"-----------"------------2 default string yahoo
    ---------"----------"-----------3 userset string Google ( this was in bold black letters)
    then i looked in browser search orders
    US.1 Default String data:text/plain browser,search.order.us.1 Yahoo
    US .2 This was the same as above except last word was Google
    US.3 Userset string Google (this was in bold black letters)
    Then I looked and saw: Browser.search.selected engine user set string Google (this was also in bold black letters)

    There you have my problem, all i want is rid of blasted bing from my pc, or at least my search results to come up in google. There is one thing I have noticed that before this issue when I searched in google then clicked the back button it rightly so went back to home page, but now what ever i type into google comes up in bing search results, but when you press the back button (top left) it stays on that search result page, and wont budge, so the only way back to googlw home page is by clicking the little house. Can you help me please, if so please keep instruction simple, many thanks.
