After using Edge insider for a while, a dozen search engines get listed in here: edge://settings/searchEngines

but there is no way to select them all and delete them, have to do it one by one. please add an option to delete all of them at once.

@HotCakeX Cool idea, I'll pass this on to our Settings team.

I wondered why it add many of these that are not even search engine but websites that I may have used the search function like for example : tenforums.com

Yeah it basically adds any website that can run a search query inside itself to the list, would be good idea to have an option to stop that list from being populated in the first place
