Microsoft Edge uses Bing for search, and personally i don't like bing as my search engine so i changed it. So now you can set another default search engine. In this guide, we show you how you can do this.

Starting with the October 2018 Update, Windows 10 includes a new version of Microsoft Edge that introduces a improved and redesigned visual experience to manage settings. The new interface was designed to ease navigation and make settings easier to understand, but the new changes seem to make it even harder and more confusing for regular users to change the default search engine to others.

The option to set a different search provider is still located on the Advanced settings page.

In this Windows 10 guide, we walk you through the all steps to change the default search engine on Edge to Google or any other search engine whatever you want with the settings available starting with the October 2018 Update.

How to search with Google instead of Bing on Microsoft Edge

To change the default search engine on Microsoft Edge, follow these steps:

1. Open Microsoft Edge.
2. Navigate to Google.com (or the search engine website you prefer) . Because we can not type Manually.
3. Click the Settings and more button in the top-right.
4. Click the Settings option.

5. Click on Advanced.
6. Under the "Address bar search" section, and click the Change search provider button.

7. Select the Google Search option from the list.

8. Finally Click the Set as default button.

Once you complete these steps, whenever you enter a search query in the address bar, the results will appear using Google's search engine instead of Bing.

Although it's possible to set any search engine you prefer (as long as the provider uses OpenSearch web standard technology), Microsoft Edge seems to be one of the most difficult to configure.

Other browsers, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, provide clear and direct access to change the search engine within the settings menu and conveniently offer an option to quickly set a different provider without additional steps.
