Step # 2 — Changing the Default Search Option

On this tab, you will see an area called “Search” which will inform you about which search engine you are currently using. The default setting is Google. In order to change this setting, click on the drop down box and you will be presented with a few of the most popular search engines. Select the one you want. As you can see learning how to set default search engine in chrome is very simple.

Step # 3 — Confirming the Change

Now to make sure that the change has gone ahead you need to open up a new tab. In the address bar type in your search term, press “return” and Chrome will run a search through you newly selected search engine, in this case Bing from Microsoft.
