    Force Microsoft EDGE to open in GOOGLE NOT Bing.


    Windows 10 Microsoft Edge opens in Bing.
    I would like it to open EVERY TIME using Google.

    I went to More Options, Open With, A Specific Page Of Pages shows Custom with Google below that.
    I then went to More Options, Settings, Advanced Settings, Search In The Address Bar changed to Google.

    Edge still opens in Bing.com

    Hello John, :)

    The tutorial below can help show you how to set the startup page for Microsoft Edge to be "a specific page or pages" with a custom google.com.

    I FINALLY figured this out. I know this is one of the most ancient Win10 issues. But you actually have to open a new edge tab, then open advanced settings and go to Search. Then go back to the page and actualy open google so it can be "detected" otherwise you'll only have Bing.

    The choices only show up if you use a search engine from a blank tab.
