How To Change Search Engine in Microsoft Edge

In this tutorial, you will learn how to change the default search engine in Microsoft Edge.

When you search for something in the address bar or search box, the search query is sent to the default search engine. By default, it is set to Bing in Edge.

Here, we demonstrate how to set Edge’s default search engine to Google. You can use the same steps to set it to Yahoo or DuckDuckGo.

Open Edge, click the three dots icon on the right-hand corner, and then Settings.
