    Google Region settings in Chrome keep reverting back to Current Region

    For years I have used the same search settings in Google. 1: Display 30 results per page and 2: region should be the USA (even though I now live in Israel.)

    I use Google Chrome and have the latest version. Version 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    For the past few days, after a few visits to my home page (google.com) The settings revert back to ISRAEL as the region. I keep putting it back to the USA but after a few minutes of browsing, it keeps going back to Israel.

    On other browsers (FF, Opera, etc) this does not happen.
    Meaning, when I go to search settings\region, in Chrome it will be set to my current region and in other browsers, it will be set to the USA.

    This itself is confusing because I would think that the changes made to the Google account settings should be global and not browser cookie-based.

    These are the things I have already tried and did not work:

    1. Logging out of all other locations and logging back in.
    2. Using this url: Google
    3. Clearing all history, cookies, etc.
    4. Allowing Google cookies.
    5. Location is disabled in my Google account settings.
    6. No one else is using my Google account.
    7. No other apps are changing this setting.

    I spent hours searching this issue on Google forums, but no one gave any more suggestions as to what’s causing this and why it only started happening a few days ago.

    What else could be causing this and what can I do?

    Note: After changing the region to the USA, it will stay like that even after clearing the cache and refreshing the page a few times. But if I visit Google.com after about 10 minutes, that's when it reverts back to the current region.

    So it seems that any region cookie that's being saved is on a timer or something.
     
  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.

    Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    OK found the solution, a classic workaround:

    Go to US Proxy List - Free Proxy List
    Pick a proxy with SSL
    Set it as proxy in Control Panel | Internet Options | Connections | LAN Settings
    Test it by going to google.com
    If you do NOT see a "Use Google.xxxx" (xxxx is a contry-specific TLD such as .co.th, .co.uk, etc) then you can go to next step
    If you DO see a "Use Google.xxxx" (xxxx is a contry-specific TLD such as .co.th, .co.uk, etc) then try another proxy

    Next step:
    Now you can follow the standard switch of search engine as per here:
    Microsoft Edge Search Engine - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Basically unless Google sees you as being in the USA it will force the localized google search engine URL on you, like it or not.
