    Changing from IE to Bing help.


    I keep getting a message that IE won't be supported or something like that?? I am in the process of changing to Bing. I have set my home page, and now I am tying to get a search bar, and a favorites bar like I have now, but am having problems doing it. I want to set it up like my current IE. The attachment is how I would like it set up. It doesn't have to be Google, but this is easy for me to use. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You have Internet Explorer open in your image so that is an Internet Browser. Other products are Edge from Microsoft, Mozilla's Firefox, Google Chrome plus some lesser known ones like Vivaldi, SeaMonkey, Torch, etc., long list can be found at MajorGeeks.Com - MajorGeeks and a Search of the Internet. I think Bing is more of a Web site usable in any browser. Microsoft's plan is to move away from IE and get us on Edge, I like Firefox better.

    Most replacement Browsers should be able to Import your Favorites/Bookmarks, some may require Exporting first.

    You are not going to be able to replicate that, all modern browsers have completely done away with the search boxes and just doubled up the search function into the address bar where you type your website addresses.

    Having all your bookmarks at the top of the page is no problem, all browsers allow this and it's very easy to turn on the bookmarks toolbar, I think all major browsers these days will import the ones you have in Internet Explorer.

    Judging by they fact you are still using Internet explorer and you have on it the google search bar that was discontinued years ago, you look like the sort of person that doesn't want to mess about and keep changing things.

    You could move to Microsoft's replacement to Internet Explorer which is call Edge, however, they are in the process of doing away with it in it's current form and replacing it with a version based on Google Chrome, so you would need to change again in the near future.

    My advice would be for you to switch to Google Chrome, it's the most supported browser and once you are used to it you will never need to switch.

    Google Chrome - The New Chrome & Most Secure Web Browser

    If you need any help getting it or other browser you choose setup then just ask

    Firefox gives you a choice of either option...
