Google Search and Chrome are from the same company, but that doesn’t mean you have to use Google Search always in Chrome. You have a number of other search engines to choose from and set them as default. You might want to do it for a number of reasons.
How To Change Search Engine In Chrome
But regardless of what your preference is, the process to do it is quite easy. We will check out how you can do it on both your PC as well as your smartphone. So, let’s check out the process.
- Launch Google Chrome
- Go to Settings > Search engine > Search engine used in the address bar
- From the drop-down list, select the search engine of your preference
- Close the tab.
- Open Google Chrome
- Go to Settings > Search engine
- Choose the search engine from the list
- Close the Settings
You will now notice that every time you will use the default search bar of Chrome, it will show you the result in the search engine you chose.
Pro Tip: If you want to add any other search engine which is not on the list in Chrome, you can do that as well. On your Chrome in PC, go to Settings > Search engine > Manage search engines. Click on the Add button beside ‘Other search engines’ and type the search engine name, keyword, and URL. Unfortunately, you can not do this in Chrome for Android/iOS.
How do I remove a search engine from Chrome?
You can go to Settings > Search engine > Manage search engines and in the ‘Default search engines’ list, click on the ‘⋮’ icon and click on ‘Remove from list’.
