Make Microsoft Edge Search Google Instead of Bing

Microsoft Edge uses Bing as their default search engine. Here I’ll show you guys how to make Edge use google as the default search engine.

First you would need to visit www.google.com if you want to make it so it will search google. If you want to make it so it can search Yahoo or any other search engine then you would first visit the site. ie. yahoo.com

Open Microsoft Edge, click the three dots at the top-right corner of the window. Select “Settings” from the drop down menu.
