    -Use chrome/google for search results

    Currently when we type anything into the taskbar search, it launches Edge + Bing to give the results.

    Microsoft Edge Google search problem

    Personally solved problem of not being able to use google search in Edge by following steps.

    1. Assumed the problem with using google in Edge is because windows 10 is still in beta.

    2. Installed Google Chrome.

    3. Set Google Chrome as the default browser in Windows 10.

    4. Pinned Google Chrome to taskbar.

    5. Removed Edge and IE from the taskbar

    6. Google search now working well in Chrome.

    Microsoft Cortana not using default browser when doing a Bing search

    Also, I am not interested in using Google to search with Cortana. All I want is for Cortana to open Google Chrome to present the results of the Bing search using Google Chrome instead of Microsoft Edge. I prefer a Microsoft Bing search over a Google search.
    If there is a way to do this, I would really like to know. Thanks.

    Use chrome/google as default for search results

    Settings > Sytem > Default apps

    Set Chrome as your default browser,

    then check Chrome settings Search to make sure it is set to Google.

    You can't change the search provider because as it states Cortana is powered by Bing.

    But you can change the default browser.

    Open the new settings app. Type in "default" in the search bar and click on "default app settings". Scroll down to Web browser and click on it. You can then chose which browser you want to have open.

    If you have Hey Cortana enabled you could say something like "search for apple pie recipe using google" and that should worko. Not tried it myself (I'm too afraid).

    If you mean Search in Windows - it's hard coded to Bing ... Cortana requires it.

    Use chrome/google as default for search results

    That would be a neat trick - I await with baited breath ... I turned off Cortana and will not turn it back on because it requires an MS account sign-in.

    I changed to Duckduckgo. I'm on a tablet at the moment so can't describe exactly. First open the search engines home page, in your case Google. Then go to settings and default apps in W10 look for advanced and options to change search. You should now find Google listed. That's how I remember it anyway ☺

    They must've changed it as there is no advanced option.

    Look all you like, but you won't find a way to change it from Bing to anything else. This is MS's way of getting more people to use Bing. At least in the U.S. Bing is just as good as Google, so no big deal for us, but it sucks for those markets that Bing sucks in.

    Try Bing2google. You do need Chrome to run the extension.

    The sad thing is that Yahoo now uses Bing for their searches.

    OK back on my laptap now.


    Open Edge browser and bring up the home page of the search engine you want, eg Google.
    Now click the 3 dots in the top right corner of Edge and scroll down to 'Settings' - then Advanced Settings and scroll down to 'Search in the address bar with' Click on 'Add New' If you're lucky you should see Google listed. Make it the default.
    Works for me with Duckduckgo - good luck !


    Warning: I've got Cortana switched off. If you use it these settings may not work since it uses Bing although it may just switch to Bing when you use it
