is there a way to change the standardsearch to google.com?
There is a workaround for IE, but for Edge, so far as i can tell, google does not natively support the opensearch format so is not supported by Edge (wouldn't surprise me if this is intentional though, MS have been doing everything in their power to try and force you to use bing in windows 10 it seems)
Thought so :-( maybe sometime there is a "fix"
I would be surprised if that option didn't appear at least by RTM time....
Do you specifically want it for edge, or are you happy using IE?
On IE thats not the problem. I was wondering about Edge
Thanks for the help
Google would need to support the specific Opensearch API....
You could set Google up as your home page. That may be as close as you get for now.
You can indeed add these to Edge:
- others (depending upon your Country)
1) Go to http://orthodox.io/edge/?c=com
2) Select your Country
Settings, View advanced settings, Search in the address bar with, <Add new>
You will find just what you want.
So this is just a simple redirektion from orthodox.io to google I assume.
Works for me
Not a redirect. The site is OpenSearch compatible, and vouches for the search engines. Edge then makes entries for those engines. After the entry is made, the site is never again visited.
No detection of malware, virus, spoofing, etc. during the process.
Actually this is super easy to do, no need for other sites or any thing like that. However it is only super easy when you know how...So my favourite search engine is http://www.google.co.uk, here is how to do it;
1. Browse to the search landing page of the search provider of choice; in my case http://www.google.co.uk
2. Let the page load
3. Click on the three dots on the top right
4. Select 'settings' from the list that appears
5. Click on 'View Advanced Settings'
6. Click on the drop down for 'Search in the address bar with'
7. Select 'add new'
8. You now see your preferred search provider in the list.
9. Choose 'add a default'
10. Happy days
Please note that this doesn't work if you aren't on the landing page of your search provider. I've tried it with google.co.uk, and also with duckduckgo and both work just fine.
