These steps apply to Windows 11, but similar options are available for Windows 10 as well. It’s important to note that Windows 11 does not allow setting a default search engine systemwide across all browsers, so you’ll need to set it for each individual browser.

Setting Google as Default Search Engine in Microsoft Edge

To make Google your default search engine in Windows 11’s Microsoft Edge browser, you can follow these simple steps:

  1. Open Edge and click on the “Settings and more” menu in the top-right corner.
  2. Choose Settings and then select Privacy, search, and services.
  3. Scroll down and choose Address bar and search.
  4. In the drop-down menu next to “Search engine used in address bar,” select Google.

By following these steps, you can ensure that all your searches in Microsoft Edge are performed using Google as the default search engine.

It’s important to note that setting a default search engine is specific to each browser, so if you use multiple browsers on your Windows 11 system, you’ll need to repeat this process for each one. However, these steps are not limited to Windows 11 and can also be applied to Windows 10 if you’re using Microsoft Edge as your browser.

Now that you’ve successfully set Google as your default search engine in Microsoft Edge, you can enjoy a seamless search experience with your preferred search engine.

Setting Google as Default Search Engine in Google Chrome

If you prefer using Google Chrome as your browser in Windows 11, here’s how you can set Google as your default search engine.

  3. In the Search engine section, use the drop-down menu next to “Search engine used in the address bar” to set Google as the default search engine.

That’s it! Now, whenever you search for something using the address bar in Google Chrome, it will automatically use Google as the default search engine.

It’s worth mentioning that you can apply similar steps to other popular browsers as well.

Important note: Windows 11 does not allow setting a default search engine systemwide across all browsers. Therefore, you’ll need to set Google as the default search engine for each individual browser separately.
