Make Google Your Default Search Provider in IE 11

Post by Audra Barclay



Having trouble in Windows 8, in setting Google as your default search  in Internet Explorer 11?

Here is the swift step-by-step guide to fixing this issue.


  1. ie11-a

    Click on the gear in the top right corner of IE.

  2. Click on "Manage add-ons"

  3. In Add-on Type click on "Search Providers"

  4. In the bottom of the window, click on "Find more search providers ..."

A new window will open.

From here you are meant to click on Google but there is no Google provider here (only the google accelerator) - because this Australian version of the page is incomplete.



And then on this page you can click on and install the Google search provider.

Hope this helps!
