I tried to change the standard search engine of the address-bar to Google, but failed:

Edge uses always Bing, despite 'Google' is the search engine marked as default in the settings! Even when I delete Bing, Bing is used nevertheless!

Resetting all settings to default also had no result. Curious is, that after resetting to default, 'Google' remains a defined search-engine!

Also strange: everything works OK on my Windows 10 Pro, the error exists on my Windows 10 Home system.

Sorry, that was my fault - everything works OK! I should always wear my eye-classes!

@Juergen_Soltau

 

Looks like you got this to work.  I can't.  I added Google as a search engine and set it as the search engine for the address bar.  Now when I type something on the address bar and hit enter, nothing happens.  If I set it back to Bing and type something and hit enter it takes me to Bing search.  How did you make it work with Google?

 

Thanks,

Bill

I found an extension called Address Bar Search Switcher which allows me to use Google search from the address bar.  I can use this until Microsoft fixes Edge to use the search engine defined in the settings.

@Juergen_Soltau im with you on this, took me ages to find the setting. it does however seem to be staying now i have changed it.

@zswobbie1234 

 

Thanks for the info.  I had to tweak it a bit to get it to work for me, but I did get it to work.  That is way too hard for the average user to figure out.  They could have made it much easier.  Chrome and Firefox both work much easier than this.  Leave it to MS to make things more difficult than they need to be.

 

Thanks
Bill

I stopped using google for search a long time ago I use bing on all my devices

@Deleted Upload an image on Google Image search and then upload it on Bing Image search, then compare the results.

 

Bing will give you completely irrelevant results, that look nothing like the image. In some cases it works fine, but on most cases it fails so badly. Google have done a fantastic job on their search. It will take quite a long time before Bing gets where Google search is.

try searching with a more relevant search using brackets or plus and minus @Henry-Williams1889 

I think bing gives a better choice@Henry-Williams1889 

@Deleted 

 

What the heck does that have to do with my original query.  I don't really care what search you use.  I use Google and wanted to know how to make Edge work with Google.  

try setting google as your home page as google @Deleted 

@Deleted 

 

It is all sorted for me.  zswobbie1234 gave me the clue I needed in order to get it to work.

I am glad you were able to get this to work Juergen,

Hi, I am a dev on Edge and I'm gathering more information about this issue.


If you see this, do you mind posting what both edge://settings/search and  edge://settings/searchEngines say?

 

One suspicion we have is that this has to do with the residing country. If you can relay this information as well, that would be helpful.

 

Thanks so much for helping.

@Deleted  Had you tried the following? Sometimes manual entries are a good door to typos. This did the trick for me when I was trying to use Duck Duck Go.

 

1- Go to edge://settings/searchEngines

2- Delete your Google entry

3- Go to Google.com

4- Return to edge://settings/searchEngines

5- Make the new Google entry your default search engine

6- Try doing a search using the address bar

@Deleted   I had the same issue - changing search engines via Settings didn't work, had to use the old Edge method of actually going to the search engine page and entering a query, then it would retain that as the choice for search engine.  Old Edge when it is closed leaves remnants in memory and it is getting in the way of Edge Chromium.

 

 Edge Chromium is supposed to work just like Chrome - change the engine via settings and done.  The fix for me was restart the PC to flush the old Edge debris from memory  and open Edge Chromium, go to Settings, Privacy, Address Bar change search engines and the address bar now uses that choice.

Strange. All I have to do is go to the search engine page. I don't have to enter a query.

Thanks for the reply.  I deleted my Google entry, went to Google.com, and then went back to the settings, but there was no Google entry.  Was this supposed to be automatically added back?  If so it didn't happen for me.

@Andypseymour , Thank you for this. With this setting, are you still getting Bing as your address bar search engine?

@Deleted It worked like that for me for Duck Duck Go, but I just tried it with Ask.com and I had to do a search in Ask before it got added to my list automatically.

@NicolSD 

 

I tried doing a search on the page and then going back to the settings and there was no Google option added back to the list.

@Deleted , If a search engine is removed, you will need to reset settings in order to get it back. I also think there should be an easier way and will file an issue on this.

@Deleted Okay, we've tried everything. It's a true bug. Sorry, I wasted your time. These steps worked for me. As I said, I was able to add Duck Duck Go just by visiting the site and Ask.com by making an inquiry.

@NicolSD 

 

No time wasted, it was worth trying.  Thanks for the help.  

@jessemMSFT 

 

Yes, I agree it is way too difficult to get this to work.  It really needs to be fixed by the developers.  As Google is probably the world's most used search engine, it should just work out of the box if selected in the options.  Thanks for your help.

@Deleted I just did another test using Dev. and I was able to add Ask.com just by going to the web site, no search necessary. Meanwhile, in Canary, I had to do a search before it got added. There is indeed a bug here and it is more extensive than we thought.

Thanks for this information. I will take a look. It's possible the open search descriptor that Ask provides is not working in Canary.

@jessemMSFT I just tested a copy of Canary (no plugins) on my Surface Pro. It had no difficulty adding Ask to my list of search engines. All I had to do was go to the Web site. No inquiry needed.

@NicolSD 

 

I just was able to make it work.  I had added another entry to the list called TEST that used Google search.  I deleted the entry called Google, but forgot to delete the entry called TEST.  I deleted that and then tried your method and it worked!  I did have to go to google.com and enter a search, but when I did it added Google to the list of entries.  I set it as the default address search engine and it seems to be working fine.  Thanks!

@jessemMSFT no, google is search engine from address bar. 

This is how I set Google:

{google:baseURL}search?q=%s

 

Thats a copy from the 3rd row, the URL setting

@jessemMSFT 

 

While you're at it, can you add the ability to change a search engine in New Tab page search field? Any way to do it now?

@sambul95 

 

This is not native to Edge, but I use the extension New Tab Redirect to set the new tab page to use Google search.

@Deleted 

 

Thanks, but that removes all New Tab features including Speed Dials etc. I just want the ability to change the search engine in the Search Bar. There is a little logic in allowing to do it on Start page and Address Bar, but not in New Tab Search Bar.

@jessemMSFT I'm seeing a similar issue -- today address bar searches with Google are redirecting to Bing (eg. see the auto-generated icon). After testing, it seems the {google:baseURL} variable is getting replaced with "https://www.bing.com/".

@sambul95 @Deleted et al

I missed whether y'all are talking in regard to Dev or Canary.  This will not do as expected, presently, in Canary.  However, in Dev, changed from Bing to google in settings... NTP using the address bar or the search bar, searched using google. The issue is not, currently in  Dev only, Canary.  And it has been reported to Mr Smiley which, all can/should do, still; more reporting the better.

Update:

This issue has been rectified as of Version 78.0.246.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
Please, update Canary Builds.

This is the value of reporting things.

Cheers,
Drew

@Jonathan Lee 

 

Thank you! We're on top of it and should be fixed in today or tomorrow's build.

@jessemMSFT 

Jess,

It IS, indeed, (already) fixed as of today, Version 78.0.246.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

Cheers,
Drew
