Edge, Microsoft’s New Web Browser

By Woody Leonhard

Microsoft is scrambling to get Edge, the new web browser packaged with Windows 10, up to equal its fierce competitors, Google Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox. It’s possible to change search engines.

Fire up Edge, go to Google, and then in the upper right click the ellipses (three dots) icon, and choose Settings. Scroll down, and click View Advanced Settings. About halfway down the right pane, where you see “Search in the address bar with,” click the down arrow and choose <Add new>. Google should appear. Click on it and click Add as default.
