Change Microsoft Edge New Tab Page Search Engine
Microsoft is restarting a new version of the Chromium-based engine Edge. Though the new browser shares many of the same features as Google Chrome, the company adds its tweaks and features, including Bing as the default search engine when searching from the address bar.
While Bing provides a great search experience, not everyone is used to or likes to use Bing search engines. However, if you want to move from Chrome, or you’d like to use other search engines (such as Google, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, etc.) as the default engine, the new version of Microsoft Edge includes an option to set up different search engines.
