  4. Select the Radio button to any alternative like google.com, duckduckgo.com, or yahoo.com.
  5. Close and Relaunch the browser app.

If you try to search for anything in the search bar, the result will appear from the newly selected search engine. You can also roll back to the default search engine on the same settings page.

Bottom Line

We can choose the search engine in the Edge app. It is set with Bing.com as the default search engine. However, we can easily switch to other available alternative search engines like Google, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo.

Any phrase you search in the address or search bar will display the results from the selected search engine.

Similarly, we can change the search engine in Edge on a computer. Like the Edge for Android, you have pre-defined options to choose the search engine. You can also configure your custom search engine on a desktop.
