RE: How to Change the Default Search Engine in Google Chrome?
Changing the default search engine in Google Chrome is a straightforward process. Here's how to do it: 1. Open Google Chrome. 2. Click on the three-dot menu icon at the top right corner of the browser. 3. From the dropdown menu, navigate to ‘Settings’. 4. Once in Settings, scroll down to the ‘Search engine’ section. 5. You’ll see a drop-down menu under ‘Search engine used in the address bar'. Click on it. 6. From the selectable list, you can choose your preferred search engine. Options typically include Google, Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo, or any other search engine you've added manually. If your desired search engine doesn't appear: 1. Select "Manage search engines". 2. Under "Other search engines," click "Add". 3. Fill in the fields with the name of the search engine, its keyword, and the URL. Then click "Add". Now your Google Chrome browser will use your chosen default search engine. Remember, the browser will only use the selected search engine in the address bar and will not affect any search engine designated on specific websites. This answer is especially useful for users who prioritize privacy and prefer search engines like DuckDuckGo over Google or those who simply prefer the algorithm/search results of different engines.
