Change Default Edge Search Engine

If you like Edge but aren’t too keen on Bing as the default search engine, it’s easy to switch. Start by opening Microsoft Edge and clicking on the three-dot menu icon at the top-right. Choose Settings from the drop-down menu.


Select Privacy, search, and services.

Scroll all the way down to Address bar and search.

Click the drop-down arrow next to Search engine used in address bar.

Choose your preferred search engine.

If you don’t see your preferred search engine. Click on Manage search engines.

You can click on Add to add additional options.

Once you’ve switched the search engine, here’s another tip. Change your home page to that search engine.

Under Settings, click on On startup.

Choose to Open on a page or specific pages. Then Add a new page.


Add the address of the search engine.

Edge will then open to your search page.
