How to change the default search engine in Chrome



Google Chrome logo

Google develops the Chrome browser, but you don’t have to use Google’s search engine with it. You can choose from an unlimited number of search engines and set them as default. We show you how to do it.

Chrome has the option to change the default search engine on all platforms, including Windows 10, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone and iPad. This determines which search engine is used when you type in the address box.

Desktop or laptop computer

First, open the Google Chrome web browser on your Windows PC, Mac or Linux computer. Click the three-dot menu icon in the top right corner of the window.
