    WIN10 HOME - EDGE not allowing Google as preffered search provider


    Hello, new guy here.
    I just purchased (April 2019) a new PC running WIN10 Home - Version 10.0.17763 Build 17763. As with most it came with Bing as the default search engine and my preference is Google. I went through the process of making Google my preferred and it is not accepting the change. I read a post saying that the latest version (April 2019) of WIN10 is actually blocking the use of Google and pushing hard for Bing. FYI, my last PC which died from "operating system not recognized" was running WIN10 Pro and I used Google all the time with no issues. Is anyone able to confirm this issue, do I need to upgrade to 10 Pro? Thanks

    :)

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?


    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    WIN10 HOME - EDGE not allowing Google as preffered search provider

    RE : IE11, Google search provider


    No, you do NOT have to enter google.com.

    There are TWO steps to configure IE. Not just setting the home page to blank.

    1. Set home page to blank
    2. Configure the address bar to search using google.

    Thus all you then do is type your search string in the address bar and you search using Google.

    I hope that's clearer. Here it is:
    1. Launch IE (blank)

    2. Type your search string:

    3. Result
