    tenforums search engine?


    OK, I recently noticed that tenforums.com is now my default search engine when using the omnibox in Chrome. This is a huge problem for me. How on earth do I change back to Google? Before you ask, yes of course I already tried to change it in Chrome settings and EVERY search engine there has the make default box disabled.

    Hi kbennett65 and welcome to TenForums,

    I now you've said you already tried to change the search engine in the settings, but I'm going to go ahead and just leave this link here even though it sounds like you've probably already tried that. Set your default search engine - Computer - Chrome Help

    If it's true that you can't change the search engine in the settings, have you tried uninstalling Chrome and then reinstalling it again?
