How to change the default search engine in Google Chrome

Google chrome is Google’s browser right? So everything you see would be mostly related to Google in the beginning and so the default search engine in Chrome is Google. But not every chrome user is a google lover and so he would love to have Yahoo/Wikipedia or any local search engine as their default one.

So here is how to change the default search engine in Google chrome browser –

Go to the address bar and right click when you are on it, you get a small set of options.

In that, select the last option “Edit Search Engines…”, and there you will see a list of default search engines and you can add a new search engine of your choice.

The search engine is added with a title, URL and keywords. There is also an option of “Suggestion Service” which you can use to help complete searches and URLs typed into the address bar.
After the search engine is added, you will have to check that and select “Make Default” in the right menu.

You are done.

  1. You are right if you want to change between Google and Yahoo or MSN, but if you want to change between Google and Google? I mean when I installed Google Chrome the search engine installed by default was Google but google.fr and all the results I get come in French, I would like to change it to Google.co.uk, I cannot find the way how to do it and get it by default!!!

    first make http://www.google.com as default search engine in internet explorer.

    Then in open chrome window
    Go to tools
