I just installed Microsoft Edge Insider browser, which is a chromium (V8) powered browser by Microsoft. In this post, I am going to walk you through to setting Google, Yahoo, or any other search engine as a default search engine on Microsoft Edge Insider browser.
Microsoft has released 3 Edge Insider channels, which are Canary Channel, Dev Channel and Beta Channel. For home users, I always recommend the Beta Channel, which is the most stable, reliable, and less vulnerable.Edge Insider Channels
Install Edge Insider Browser, if not yet
You can download Microsoft Edge Insider browser from the following link.
To Set Google as a Default Search Engine
Launch the Edge Insider browser, and click the three dots on the right top corner.
As soon as you click the right top dots, a drop down window appears. Now, scroll down and click the Settings with gear icon.
On the left, you click Privacy and services with lock icon
Scroll down and click Address bar at bottom
Click the drop down menu list and select Google, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo as a default search engine.
In case, Google does not appear in the list, simply open a new tab and go to www.google.com and perform a search then refresh the Address bar setting page now you should have Google in the list, select it and refresh or relaunch the Edge Insider browser.
You are good to go.
