How to make Google as default search engine in IE 10

    Question

  • I recently installed the Windows Developer Preview, but when I try to change the default search engine in IE, it only says that I can have Bing, Ebay and something else. Google search is listed as an accelerator. If I add that, I cannot search on Google through the address bar. Any ideas??? (I guess I can't really blame Microsoft for this, because it is supposed to be a buggy version. But it should get fixed.)

  • Google already was the default for me. Perhaps it imported this setting from IE9 from Windows 7. I remember it was a simple change in IE9.
    Sorry i cannot be of more help.

  • Yeah the google one gave problems with some more people. Maybe install a google toolbar?

  • IE 10 doesn't include any other search providers. (Under "Manage Add Ons"). The IE 9 ones work though. Go here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-en/default.mspx and install whichever ones you want to add.
